A Personal Parable: The BikeOnce upon a time a little girl wanted to ride a bike.A Personal Parable: The Bike by TheLittleBlueBird
She would spend days dreaming of it
She'd jump onto dad's exercise bike and pedaling the day away
Tipping and turning as if she were on a real bike
She would watch movies and draw pictures
She really, really, REALLY wanted that bike
And what wondrous things she would be able to do once she had it!
She could get to school within minutes, pick up groceries without tiring
She could ride down the path at the lake
Race with her friends ride with her family
She wanted to ride fast
Even her dreams were about bike riding
Whiz around corners without even turning the handles
soar down hills, hands in the air as she was flying
Flying just above the ground
A bike would make her possibilities limitless!
One day she was told she was old enough and ready to have a bike
She had to train.
And so she was given training wheels.
The training wheels were meant to be guide
To teach you to balance, how to steer without falling
Many kids fared
ExperimentsSummary: "Do you ever find your mind wandering?" - Holmes is obviously troubled by something and despite Watson's attempts to find out what it is, he's not budging. What he doesn't know is that Holmes has come up with his most curious experiment so far.Experiments by Shikyo-no-Sabaku
Fluff based on the drawing in the description by Schimmelbrot.
"What is it, Holmes?"
"Do you ever find your mind... wandering?"
"What do you mean?"
"You know. You're just sitting, reading something, and then your mind starts to think of other... things."
"I suppose I'm familiar with the concept. Why? Something occupying your crazy thoughts?"
"Now now, no need to get offensive."
"I'm not insulting you, just stating the obvious."
A small silence fell between them.
"What's bothering you?"
"There's nothing bothering me."
"Then what was that all about?"
"As to what?"
"Never you mind."
A rustling of the newspaper signalled his annoyance.
"Fine. Suit yourself."
