Hippie, Gypzy, Biker Chixie. Yep, that's me. www.bikerlady.com and www.chromecowgirl.com - my websites and I welcome your comments in this blog called Down the Road a Peace. Because, after all "do you wanna a peace of me?" : ) I'd love to hear your thoughts, so share them here. Personalize the topic and make it your own by sharing your own experience relative to the topic at hand, or let's create a new topic. U R Loved by Me.


In it for the Long HAUL.

When I first committed to getting my music project completed, little did I realize it would take so many years.  From the moment you write and arrange to the opportunity and $ to record it takes a long time.  Often times, I wanted to just set the project aside 'til some pinpoint in the future because the frustration to see a project through with minimal resources just pillaged the creative joy of it.  I would not give up and forget about it.  I just had to set it aside until I could love the process again.

That's being in something for the long haul.

The long haul is to haul your dreams around because you just can't set 'em on the side of the road forever like trash.  Can you image how littered roadways would be if that were the case?  No, you have to keep those dreams alive for the long haul.  Even though the dream is not so front and center where it needs to be.  'Cause other things get in the way of that vision.  Like, I don't know, an epic flood, family turmoil, unemployment, illness....

When that dream is locked and stocked in your heart, it's there for the long haul.  Take it out.  Play with it.  Give it life.  Don't toss it on the side of the road.

Yep, that music project is on the way again.  It's been a long haul.


The LOVE of my LIFE.

(c) 2010 by Stacie Huckeba

The LOVE OF MY LIFE.  Is riding my motorcycle and all things related to riding my motorcycle.  Because everything in my life that is awesome has been brought about from the universe through my passion for riding.  Everytime I climb on my bike and take to the wind I feel the depth of my entire existence on this earth and how I am so connected to all things divine and good.  I feel rich with the awe of life beyond measure.  

Tigerlily is the name of my motorcycle because I believe that this girl is very naturally a tiger and a lily.  My motorcycle is an extension of my soul because it manifests the expression of that which is unnameable: God, Jehovah, Mother, Father, etc.   

No matter what the weather I love to ride.  My motorcycle and I weather the storms in life.  There have been times when I could not ride her because I didn't have the $$$ to even put her on the road so I would just sit upon her and dream.  The photo shoot that Stacy Huckeba www.imagesbystacie.com captured is The LOVE of my LIFE: riding MY motorcycle and my relationship with that bike.  She also beautifully captured my relationship with Patrick.  So that makes two LOVES of my LIFE.  Tigerlily brings color into my life lens and shows me a perspective on everything in a way I couldn't experience just standing still in my own jaded lens.  She brings purpose and she let's me know how fragile my life is and how precious my existence here on earth.

My motorcycle is so powerful way beyond the material presence of a machine.   She is my WORLD and she brings me an experience here on earth that I cannot imagine living without...TRUTH.  My motorcycle brings my dreams to life and she brought me my Patrick and my little pets, and music and a literary career and so many beautiful opportunities.  My motorcycle brings forth the TRUTH of my BEING:  Joy, Love, Laughter and deep contemplation.  She brings me friendship and family.   She weathers life's storms with me and drives me through the driving tears drops and let's me know that everything is gonna be okay.  My motorcycle has taught me LOVE of my LIFE.

Share with me how your motorcycle just may be the Love of Your Life.


The art of Excavation...

Before.  Bohemian rhapsody.  All is quiet on the homestead front.   And then after, the excavation begins.  And they are going eight feet down more than you see in the photo below.  That brings to mind....excavation and digging deep in all that you do. Going below the surface.  Because the surface doesn't always reflect the leaks and cracks and repair work needed deep down.  We need to keep our foundations preserved. ; )   I love the fact that we found giant rocks.  Solid pieces.  We shall make front yard art out of the rock.  Stay tuned for more on discovering ROCK SOLIDS.



This is what I feel like today!   I think the full moon, home being excavated, and, oh, waiting for those ever seemingly elusive phone calls and return emails to happen that make for excellent career and dream maker acceleration.   Plusssssssssssssssss, I'm exploding with cool ideas today and I want to do everything and I wish I had millions of dollars to just make it all happen.  Sorta like having a fancy staircase vs.  a broken ladder to get where you wanna go.  Sometimes you have to skip a few rungs on the ladder because the rungs just broke away from feeling stuck for so long!  Climb on...   Aggggghhh!



Okay so I'm itchin to hit the road again really fast. It's in my blood. The ROAD. Two Wheels. But priorities took over. We got hit with another flood bummer last week (not near as devastating as May 2010) and so now I need to sit tight and supervise the dudes excavating the entire front of our house here in Nashville. They have to excavate all the way to the slab and put in a French drain. The May flood coupled with the hard rains last week just wrecked the front of the house drain capabilities. And, of course, Patrick goes back on the road. It sux that his career is always priority in this house and in my world because he's a bass player with a major country star and his chair is NUMBER ONE over everything. It's the way it goes in the relationship of being with a musician. I didn't know that.

So, my mandatory priority is taking care of the homestead while he's on tour. He's a good man and takes good care of me and has provided a nice home for this gypsy girl. Can't help, though, that the road constantly beckons my heart. It's in my blood. Two wheels move my soul. That is my secret wannahaveit priority, but in my selflessness, I am here in Nashville watching the baby animals and a contractor dude tear up the front yard.
Home is where the heart is and my heart shares the love of the road and actually having a real bed to lay my head at night with Patrick. Just wish I could fly my ride alot more like days of yor.
This flood stuff and a bummer economy has particularily messed up my roll this summer. But it surely made Sturgis 2010 that much sweeter to attend.


Facebook...takes over my blog!

Hey everyone. I haven't posted in my blog for ages because Facebook has become my daily blog spot but now I have way over the capacity of fans over 1,000 waiting to get into my profile. Wendy Jans is designing a new blog page for me that I'll be posting to which will combine the tumblr and blogger outlets. I hope my Facebook allows anyone and everyone to read it even tho you may not be a "friend" but you really are, it's just that FB won't let me accept anymore and the whole "like" thing is sort of weird to me; it's not even designed the way the personal profile space is and I LOVE the personal interaction with everyone.

There has been so much happening and I realize that if you don't go onto my Facebook page you may think I'm just this dormant chick. HellNO. I've been busy as ever and now traveling more. Just got hired back into the Broken Spoke family again and I'll be working with Easyrider events and LoneStar. Yeah, honeys! So, I'm getting a smartphone now (I've been holding off because that extra $30 per month to operate a smart phone can go to so many other cool things, like yard saling and saving up for a mototrip) Anyway, I realize that I need a smartphone now more than ever because there is so much interaction with everyone in the social media world and I just love all this opportunity to constantly compose the written word.

http://www.facebook.com/chromecowgirl - dig it. tell me via message if you can experience my facebook even if I can't add you as a friend because I have too many. if not...then I must do the whole "like" thing.

Can't wait to hear all about your summer adventures.

Lots of love and high vibe karma,


Biker Chicz the book and TV!

2010 checkin

Resolutions are "I'm going to do __________ from now on, or I'm not going to do __________ from now on. Are we keeping our resolutions, those promises to ourselves for something better and more fulfilling. Such as eating healthy or quitting a habit that is sure to cause health issues. Maybe it's working towards a precious goal that you've kept on the back burner. We need to keep those promises to ourselves. This is a note to check in and see if you are doing that with your resolutions, reprogramming yourself for something better and more fulfilling in life.
