I think I’m being followed : focus to infinity

I think I’m being followed

May 25, 2009 | Filed Under Uncategorized 

About 30 minutes into my beach run the other day, this kid with a wire wheel and metal stick that pushed said wheel, began to follow me. At first I thought we were just heading the same direction, but then I noticed when I slowed, he slowed, and when I sped up, he sped up. He didn’t say a word to me, and each time I looked over at him, he would keep looking straight ahead and not make eye contact with me at all. No one else on the very crowded beach said anything to him as we ran by, and after 30 minutes of him following me, I began to wonder if he was a figment of my imagination. The wheel he was pushing reminded me of something out of 1950s Americana. Eventually, I took a photo. So yes, he does exist. And he has some darn good stamina. We ran together for 45 minutes…kid-on-beach.jpg

    I love this! It fills my mind with whimsy and wonder. What a perfect post. The circle/stick game reminds me of a famous European painting … the name of the artist and the painting is escaping me.
