Abstract Reflections


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.

    “Wow” came first out of my mouth, then I found the lumbering coy. Very nice, Angeline.

    I am with Madhu on this post. Art is a great way to describe what you do.


  18. 🙂 Fun with funny memories – lifetimes ago since I last rode, but I remember getting back on then, after relinquishing it as my primary form of locomotion in a previous incarnation … weird, remember my brain scrambling to match muscle memory to keep me upright (no daughter to grab the back of my saddle, like Papa had!). What a treat, Angeline – and that vibrant reflective shot … terrific. 🙂
