Most of my reflections of late seem to be in abstract form. So many loose associations meld into thoughts of so many things. An afternoon spent with a daughter where on a whim she gets me to try out her bike, an old-fashioned, no gears cruiser much like the one I had as a kid. Somehow, I’ve forgotten balance as a criterion for this action; before I know it the daughter is holding the back of the bike’s seat and running behind me while I steer. Wait a minute, didn’t I just do this with her a few years ago when she was a kid? An afternoon of warm spring sunshine, wobbling down the lane on a blue bike, laughter and shrieks. I use that as the excuse of why I couldn’t balance. But, then again, it was such a reflection on never forgetting some things.
