Lucy’s Goal!


Lucy's GoalWe all go through rites of passage in our lives. We then watch proudly as our children pass through them as well. Sometimes we are very fortunate to get a glimpse of others achieving those small early steps. It serves to not only remind us of times past but also restores our faith in human nature…

A father runs panting,
in the park,
behind his daughter,
Lucy (aged 5).
It’s just her second day,
without stabilizers,
but with fatherly
support like that,
she should enjoy
ongoing stability,
and hopefully,
throughout her life,
reach all her goals.
