Age 3.

That time was, for me, primarily for testing boundaries,

I guess (lol).

I remember it was a spring day in 1979

When I lived in the second story apartment

That overlooked a freeway.

At the time I guess I was fascinated with the cars racing down the road trying to get to their destination in a hurry.

“So what do I do?”

That day I popped out the screen on the window

“… and thought to hang out of it and say hi to everyone.”

~Carlos Aranda

My father was in a cast and was banged up from a car accident he was in,

And till this day

We both wonder

How he bolted like lightning

To get me

Before I made real trouble.
