The Novice Begins the Quest

Master, my blogging friends Ptelea and George have brought to me questions surrounding the Bike Shui and its mysteries....

... . . .

Questioning not in the non-believer's way, Master, but in a searching way!

.. . . .. . .

Master, Ptelea out in Colorado is hoping her son can bring the shui to her garage: Like all good 17-year-olds, he already thinks I am crazy, so what further harm could it do to tell him I want to perform feng shui on the garage?

And George has responded: Ya know, our garage is the only room in the house that is "mine" and *I* think it looks organized. My wife on the other hand thinks it looks junky. Maybe it's time to rearrange the bikes:-)

The whole exchange, Master, has caused me deep searching...is.....can......the shui is for all, is it not?

... . .

Is it possible for the Bike Shui to affect only the...one?

. ... . .. .

Master, my understanding of the Bike Shui is so limited. Are all affected and calmed by the shui? Does one not create Bike Shui for another? or is it possible for one’s shui to send another into the depths? It all causes so much confusion....

. .. . ... .

Master?

Bike shui can cause anxiety in The Other as when a newly-organized and thoughtfully hung set of bikes results in the utterance "When did you get THAT bike?". Disorder can conceal acquisitions until a decent interval has passed and thus entropy has its uses.

Ptelea said...

Any Word from the Master yet?(asked in a spirit of great respect and hope!)

Matt -- aahhh...so the Shui can be subjective and dependent upon inner motives. It can reveal! And in doing so, may cause anxiety in The Other and therefore in The One as well. Disorder has its valued purpose in a cyclist's garage....

But, Kind Searcher, is this shui truly the Bike Shui of garage and laundry room peace and harmony? Could this be the dark side of the Bike Shui masked as calmness and order?

Ptelea -- I anxiously await word!

Hey, I think I know what I'm gonna do.............

I'm going to sell *ALL* of my bikes (except my Surly) and start over with new bikes.

Ya think my wife will be okay with it?

Geroge -- Man, you and Matt have truly been influenced by the dark side of the Shui...of course, if you're the Bicycle Owner of the household and not The Other, the dark side would be WAAAYYY FUN!
