A few weeks ago, he emailed another suggestion. Why didn't he pay for me to fly out to his home in Maryland and do the work in situ, while also enjoying a week of chilling out, biking and tourism with Rick and Mrs Rick?
It was such a generous offer that it was a while before I convinced myself I should accept it, but I did. I'll be flying into Washington Dulles airport on Sunday April 21st, returning the following Sunday.
It's a fantastic opportunity, and it has come about as a direct result of pursuing my passions for writing and motorcycles. This is how life should work.
