The Farmer’s Wife – Motorbike Moment
I remember learning to ride George’s motorbike. It was a two wheeled Suzuki ER 185cc, bright yellow and covered in mud, or was it cow shit. Probably both. It was aged beyond its years from some seriously tough farm work. I had been going ok, getting the hang of it quite nicely.
The Farmer’s Wife is a series of short stories about some of the moments which shaped who I am today. It highlights how planning and control are really only an illusion and that knowing which opportunities to take and when is a gift.
