Hooray! I love everything about this piece. It reminds me of a scene in the film version of “Big Little Lies.” The daughter of the Black renter wants a bicycle but her artist-mom can’t afford one, so she repurposes pieces from other bikes and paints it as only an artist could. It’s a completely original and totally cool bike.

And I love the free-room idea. I once lived in a small town outside Seattle, and we had a free-bench on the porch of the general store. I’d forgotten about it till reading this. Glad you’re promoting these wonderful ideas. We’ve got to get smart about saving our world.
