I loved riding my bike as a child. It offered me a new world view. I was fast and free. Then we put cards in the spokes, and I motorcycled. I cut corners like a politician and wore aviator glasses... I could have passed my driving test, last year - but nooo - for once - I was chill. I'm sure the trauma of my laziness will scar me, but - maybe not. Sometimes I'm SO resilient that people think me uncaring. Warning: People may be far more emotional than they might appear

If I’d only gotten my operators license when I had a chance I’d have more freedom to get out with short drives when I’m feeling stir crazy. Thanks Rico. =]

First freedom is like a first kiss - a missed opportunity may last a while. Thanks for commenting =]
