Shall we see beyond the swings, the sand dunes and the stuck-in-cement telescopes?

Could we skate sideways past the shop window where Mrs. Jones will most surely see us and smile at memories of the school classroom?

Did the discussion at dinner bring new understanding, joy and delight?

Drastic melodies for a pause before they refresh.

Cymbals and french horns addressed each other as if they were long-lost friends.

We weren’t so sure! But off we went, built up speed, felt the sheer force of gravity and the exhilaration of success!

The principle was wrong. That it worked out so well was luck, or a fair wind, or the bright sun or the loud applause of loyal crowds…or who knows?

But then, we are happy to help!
