Stop that ball: reflections on tonight's sunset in Edmonton
Tonight the sun in the smoky sky in Edmonton looks like a lot of things. It looks like payload being lowered to the horizon.
And it looks like those flabby red balls we would kick onto the roof of the school during summer holiday. After six or seven attempts.
The sun tonight proves the First Law of the Goodness of Riding a Bicycle in the City: when you are on a bicycle, it is easy to stop for a big, glorious red light.
I am not the only one feeling the need to make time stand still this evening.
Commonplace red lights are coloured with new meaning.
That ball is outta here!
Stopping moves us.
The colour red—we carry it with us.
