On Bicycles (Discovery 8/15/09)

(During the weekends the "discoveries" may often be much shorter because school is back in session and I don't want to spend too much of my time on the computer...instead I want to be with my daughters every chance I get, or be on the lake, or be sitting under a tree working on my new book.  So, with that in mind, the blogs for this weekend are shorter, with promises of the weekday ones being longer.  Also, don't forget to scroll down so you can follow my blog and receive notices each time there is a new post.)

On Bicycles (Discovery 8/15/09)

A bicycle is the only completely perfect vehicle, the only vehicle that allows us to be still and to be in motion at the same time.

The day you posted this, my father, a triathlete at age 66, took a flying leap off his bicycle and fractured two bones in his neck. He will recover, thank God. Even after all of this, I think he would still agree with you!

Your novels refer so much to music that I think in many ways a blog is a more fitting form for you; it gives you the ability to link to music within your text, something I would love to see (somehow) in Clay's Quilt, for instance.

I want to show this particular entry to my brother, he would also agree with it.
