We all get warnings, it's up to us whether we heed them or not.  The last few months I had been ignoring all sorts of warnings in various aspects of life.  I didn't think much of it during last Sunday's rainy solo woods ride when I took my goggles off so I could see.

Five minutes later I was given a nasty, but merciful reminder when my front wheel caught a 1" sapling and turned it into a whip.  And where did this whip land?  Squarely on the the part of my body that was no longer covered with protective gear.  My nose.  Hurt like hell and I had to stop for a minute until the tears cleared, but it could have been worse.  A lot worse.  I could be typing this looking out of one eye.

We ignore the warnings at our own peril.  Listen to them.

A mere inch from partial blindness.  Stupid.

Not much good in this position, are they?
