Bicycle Thieves

In his father’s shadow, the little man mirrors step for step. The dance changes when he is commanded or rebuked and parallels at a distance. Each time the mood of the choreography changes, the boy considers, and then makes adjustments. Sometimes the directions are confusing. Should he enjoy his sandwich or mourn for the loss of future meals? What is the correct procedure for tracking a man down during a church service? Are his concerted efforts worthwhile, since his father is preoccupied and flawed? Ah yes, for the father is also dedicated and resolute. Much can be learned from a partner like that.
