The sirens were screaming. Cars were zigging and zagging. We didn’t know if we were moving towards safety or moving into more trouble.
We pedaled harder. Faster.
To our right, a child skipping along the sidewalk with her pregnant mother close behind. To our left, a park with couples sitting, walking, kissing. Ahead of us, the open road and a slew of split decisions to be made.
She passed me to my right and nodded – nudging me to keep up.
The sirens finally caught up to us…and then, sped past us. It was simply a passing ambulance.
But the idea that we were being chased for some felony made us turn into imaginary James Bond figures for the evening.
As we rode to our destination, we took up the entire lane at times, glancing at the city as our playground and our home.
At dinner, we plopped into our seats – exhausted from the chase – and began to share stories of our recent adventures. Another busy day had passed.
Your imagination will move as fast as you let it. It will take you to wonderful places, no matter the day or the situation.
Let it move. And let yourself move with it.
