The Edge That Comes With Embracing Extraordinary ‘Projects’

What comes with stepping into and operating from an extraordinary context and/or taking on an extraordinary ‘project’ or possibility?

Two thoughts occurred to me above all others: first, how fortunate I was to be able to make myself so comfortable in an emergency…… And second, how little interest people showed in my bike compared with 1973. Back the everyone was curious; today a heavily laden motorcycle is commonplace, and I received little attention …..

Not that I craved the attention for its own sake but I remembered how it had helped me in the past to feel that I was doing something extraordinary, and how that feeling had given me an edge which made everything seem more significant.
