Spinning your Wheels

Oh well. or is it, oh wheel! The other day, while walking near downtown Bend, Oregon, I stumbled upon this pink rim attached to a jet black Honda Civic. I am not sure that this photo shows much about my town other that some young people here, like everywhere, enjoy customizing their cars. Much could be written about conformity and individualism, about wasting money or prioritizing one's resources, about attention getting devices and low self esteem. It can be said that many people discovered skills from hobbies such as cars, and flourished later on in life . In any case today this wheel reminds me for Ruby Tuesday to reserve judgment and watch the rosy world go 'round.

Nice post, Lee. I love the way this looks in a photo. I like what you said about it. There'a a lot to think about.

Ah, Lee...were all the wheels pink, or was this the only aberrant one? And if so, what doth that say about the wheel.

Maybe it wanted to be a "big wheel" and thought it could do that by painting itself pink?

Reminds me of something Adam or Thomas would have put on their Neons back in the day.
