#”the serious narratives about culture and history [are] interwoven with a thread of humor…from their original homelands on the atlantic #coast of the united states the ojibwe and other algonquian tribes had been migrating westward for centuries before european contact. the #spiritual and economic rationales for this radical change in demographics are still well-documented in the oral tradition of the ojibwe.” #”a windigo [is] an evil man-eating spirit. windigos play the roles of monsters and bogeymen in some chippewa tales; #in others chippewa people who commit sins (especially selfishness gluttony or cannibalism) are turned into windigos as punishment.”
In life you have to make choices as to where you spend your time. Each minute you spend on one activity takes away from another. Finding a balance that allows you to keep your sanity and create memories and a legacy that you can be proud to pass on is the great challenge we all face. Our time is short, so choose wisely, prioritize and help others along the way. For only they will remember you when you are gone.

live to ride
how did bikers ever get the reputation of being fearsome. Everything I’ve ever heard about them is always rides for charity, helping stray animals, telling kids to stay in school and doing cute shit like this and generally being nicer than 90% of the population.
