Pedal Park

July 30, 2018

Have you ever seen a collection of vintage pedal cars at an antiques mall, or on a youtube video? Aren’t they wonderful?

What about a park for them, a Pedal Park?

My suggestion is that someone set up a landscaped park with a maze of mini roads throughout, that allows pedal cars to go from a starting point, meander through a maze of mini roads, and end up back where they started.

The road would be one way, but there would be a place or two where the cars would have to come to a stop and allow cross traffic to pass.

The child and parents would start at the parking ‘garage’ where you could rent for your child, the pedal car of his/her choice. They would be lined up, each in their own pint sized parking space.

There should be all kinds of styles of pedal cars: cars, trucks, service vehicles, the works. Everything from a fancy luxury car, to fire engines. It would be best if no two were alike!

The customer would rent a car for one trip through the park from start to finish.

There would also be pit stops along the way where parents could sit at a bench and watch, or trails along the road where they could walk close behind their kids. There also should be a refreshment stand for snacks.

What do you think of Pedal Park?

3 Moon Poems

July 30, 2018

Moon Park
invisible in day
starts stirring
as dusk settles.
Meet me my love
at Moon Park.

There is a place
on the far side of the Moon
that’s home to the shadows
that have been left behind.
They walk those moors
on that grey world;
itself a shadow
to a larger body.

Call me
the Moon poet,
and i’ll
light up!

The Origin of Life… IF

July 23, 2018

Concerning the origin of life:

IF life was hard to start,
it’s most likely that we are NOT here!

IF life was easy to start,
it’s most likely that we ARE here!
