Courtesy Rider

A L O H A !

" You're only given
a little spark of madness.
You mustn't lose it.

Robin Williams

" Thanks
are the highest form
of thought. "

G.K. Chesterton

I like this shot
because it accidentally captured a plane 
and a bird;
but the bird is higher.

I'm playing a new game
on my scooter.

It's SO much fun to be on two wheels-
just like that anonymous quote:
"Riding a horse is like riding the sky."

It feels like flying close to the ground.
A twist of the wrist 
propels, elates,

Cars are driven, but you
RIDE a motorcycle.
Bikers call cars:
4 Wheels get you there;
2 wheels make it


This holiday season
I am playing a NEW game called:
"Courtesy Rider."

It was indirectly suggested to me
by the angry Honolulu Police Officer
who gave me a stern talking-to
last week.

He threatened to write me a ticket
but didn't.
Too much fun
can look reckless
I suppose. . .

So I now I am:

No more zipping around through traffic
like a UFO.
Legitimate acceleration,
feels better
than playing hound & hare
with ME as the hare.

Thanks Officer.

Maybe you even saved
my life.

Nice early Holiday gift!

Now YOU be safe, my friend.
& Thank YOU for your visit!
