The Biker

May 3, 2009


Taiyo’s been off training wheels for a few months now, but it was only recently that I was able to get him on camera. The process of getting him to take off on two wheels is a great metaphor for parenting. At first, I was running with him, gripping the back of his seat to keep him steady. But after a few runs I realized that my controlling grip was actually making him more unsteady. That’s when I realized, you just have to let go… And then, he started to ride, nice and smooth.
