TBT co-founder Nathalie Sorrell says this about Kim’s Bike Across America ride:

I’m so excited about my friend, Kim Basinger, making her tranAmerica bike trip. Yesterday I saw a video of her dipping her bike tires into the very active Pacific shoreline waters (so different from the low steady shallow, warm! shoreline waves I experienced in Galveston and Padre Island when I was growing up.)  She was laughing and yelling over the surf as she began her ride from a place near Astoria, Oregon to Eugene, where another dear friend is offering her home for Kim to overnight in, after 3 or 4 days of biking down the west coast. In Eugene – she’ll turn east for the 1st time.

WOW!  I hope y’all will tune in and get some vicarious thrills and more importantly – the inspiration to do something that lights or blows the breath of life on the flames of your inmost heart’s desire. It’s scary, it’s a daily challenge that varies from effortful to FLOWING and it’s a journey, whether you leave home or not. That’s how Truth be Told’s prison work was generated, and that’s how I get my energy and enthusiasm every day, since I said “In Spite of Everything, Yes!” to what I was created to do!  GO KIM! God is with you every mile… every minute.


About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
