Transformation #2. There were about four kids up there who seemed rather impressed to see a cyclist. They seemed genuinely excited asking questions like "did you ride up the mountain?" and "do you get tired riding a long way." I'm just wondering at what age the transformation into the driver who hates the sight of cyclists begins.
I find that kids are often more easily impressed than adults. I attribute it to a natural humility, a fascination with life that overflows any fear of what other think. It is perhaps their greatest virtue, the gradual loss of which, as adulthood creeps in,
is a major cause of confusion and poor choices.
Some people hate kids. I can't understand that.
Humility is an attribute that actually makes us teachable, therfore potentially wiser.
