“I like listening to the sounds of nature and the sounds of the world.”
“Do you remember your first time riding a bike? Where were you? Who were you with?” Yeah, so the first time I rode a bike was with my dad in my neighborhood cul-de-sac. He was holding the back of my bike as I rode around. And my mom and my sister were watching me from the driveway. And I remember this so clearly because I felt so free. My hair wasn’t tied and so it was like flying behind me and the wind was at my face, and I just felt so connected with nature. And till today riding my bike is one of my favorite hobbies. In fact, in the pandemic I’ve ridden my bike way more than I ever have because we couldn’t go anywhere and it was just nice to go outside for a while because, you know, in online schooling, we were like sitting at a computer for eight hours a day. And so it was nice to go outside and I don’t know. Whenever I ride my bike, I feel very connected to the Earth, to nature, and I don’t listen to music while I’m riding my bike. So I like listening to the sounds of nature and the sounds of the world.
