V is for Velocity by Volition

SCAN0053I love the word Velo for a bicycle since it reminds me of Velocity: the rate of change of the displacement, the difference between the final and initial position of an object. It’s a specification of its speed and direction of motion. There is nothing quite like the feeling of crossing territory on a bike – by one’s own Volition. Some folks are put off by the effort up the hills, but it’s all worthwhile to come down the other side!  And for the satisfaction I feel at the end of the ride.

Left brain, right brain, I can't decide. After many years of successful visual arts pursuits, I'm working on my other creative inclinations. For the past 8 years, writing has been my second full time job, and it's worth every sleepless night. Sheri J. Kennedy grew up mostly a city-girl coasthopping from Seattle to rural Pennsylvania, Miami and back to Seattle. She currently resides on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in the scenic Cascade Mountains. Her heart has found its home.

    Yep – nothing like coming down again! I can’t cycle much, especially as my assistance dog would not fit on the bike, but my husband now cycles to work (about 10 miles), and says he has never felt better. Ad he doesn’t have to find a place to park so it actually takes him less time than it did in the car! ~Liz http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com
