I was telling my friend that my desire to get my licence for this gorgeous thing is bordering on obsession
"Why?" she said.
"Why so desperate?"
"Because then I can ride away. Alone. No-one to watch me."
"Why's that so important?"
"Because I don't want to be scrutinised. I want to be free"
"Hmm," she said after a pause. "You know, no matter how fancy the bike and how far you ride, you can't ride away from what's inside."
