Over the past few weeks my studio has become infested with these small & insane bits of paper; each one with bicycle-like things scrawled on them. Did you know that the bicycle was one of the first technologies to be adopted and spread the fastest globally! Faster than the paper clip, zipper or the even the insanely great iPod. Things with wheels (wheels that go on the ground; wheels that include spokes), easily understood, engineered re-engineered are an entrpreneurial engine the world over. Bicycles are the common denominator that binds city and country, rich and poor, young and old, oppressed and oppressor, dreamer and drug dealer.
Maybe this is why I've been thinking about bicycles lately… Then again, maybe not.

These pebbles are from Long Island somewhere. If you're over there, could you pick me up a few more? I'm running low.
