"Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance
you must keep moving."
I first saw this gentleman with his bike in the back woods.
When I reached the main path that borders the pond
a young boy was watching him repair a spoke.
"How old is that bike?" the young boy asked.
"It's US Army issue from 1948," the gentleman answered.
"Wow!" said the boy.
"Wow, indeed..." I thought.
Time marches on.
Keeps right on moving.
No matter how much we wish it would slow down,
one moment turns into another,
one day into the next.
Perhaps the key to maintaining some balance in life
really is to keep moving right along with time.
Physically moving -
to strengthen our bodies and keep new cells growing.
Intellectually moving -
to sharpen our minds and keep learning.
Emotionally moving -
to enrich our relationships and experience life more fully in the moment.
Spiritually moving -
with an open mind and a seeker's heart.
As I was moving along a back woods path,
I heard the "dring-dring" of an old fashioned bicycle bell behind me.
"On your left," came the cheery voice.
I stepped easily to my right
and looked to catch the rider's smile
as she breezed by.
Though we were moving at different paces
and in different ways,
we shared a moment
in the back woods on a sunny day.
Neither of us lost our balance.
We shared the path easily, even with our differences.
And got a wink of approval from the sun
in the bike's little rear view mirror.
