I've got a hankering for a motorcycle. I really want one. I wonder how much they cost. I see motorcycles pretty often in my drives around Atl these days, and I think how often it would have been nice to go somewhere on a motorcycle. They can't cost that much. And driving one makes you so cool. At least I would feel cool.
In No Direction Home Dylan said, "Everybody likes motorcycles, to some extent." That cracked me up.
I actually thought a lot about motorcycles last summer. I often saw packs of motorcycles, or a couple, driving around seeing the country. And I always wished I could join them. They looked like they were having so much fun.
I just went to the Halloween parade up my street. It was AWEsome. It was the most fantabulous sight to see. I can't even describe how amusing it was. There were floats, and everyone in the parade was comPLETEly dressed up and in character. a lot of political agendas... I was walking by myself, and just enjoyed the sight so much I wanted to laugh out loud, but I suppressed it in a grin on my face.
You never can quite tell when someone is in character or in person here, which is more amusing.
What is interesting about being immersed in the scene is the universality of feeling - everyone who would come to such a thing either plays the part or appreciates it very much. And by virtue of the scene, there is so much diversity. I saw people from 2 years to 62 years dressed up. And there was a general feeling of camaraderie and community in the air. I do appreciate self-expression so much.
