Now another way to relate to one of my favorite poems by Emily Dickinson:
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us — you know!
In Mary Choi’s essay for the New York Times – The Terror and Humiliation of Learning to Ride a Bike at 33 – she confesses to being an adult who never learned how to ride a bike – a skill lacking in my upbringing too. I thought I was alone, but Choi’s humorous essay gives me hope. All I have to do is move to New York City and buy a bike helmet.
