Artist's Description

I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere and the other day whilst driving home we passed a shed. I have seen this shed ever single day of my life since i was a little girl. The shed is about 2 meters by 2 meters and contains our electricity box (not really important…) and so i have never had a desire to venture inside it, or even look. So when driving passed it, the door was open and i just glanced in. A bicycle caught my eye and when we stopped, i ran up to investigate. And this was what i found! An ancient old real African Bicycle that belongs to our gardener who was storing it in this shed. Well i then had a field day!
The title is inspired by a song by Imogen HeapLet Go, its beautiful!

And then this song was so beautiful and it had alink to a bicycle and so i had to include it!

Bicycle TricycleRosie Thomas
Bicycle tricycle take me far with
my hands on your handlebars.
I can’t be homecoming queen for every boy
That falls in and out of love with me.
I won’t look back
I’ve been here before
I’ve been here before
I’ll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go
Flower dress strawberry red
I must confess you’re my safety pin
Hold me together hide me well
So he cannot tell the state that I am in
I won’t look back
I’ve been here before
I’ve been here before
I’ll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go
Roller skates figure eights
Roll me away and I won’t complain
I’ll bring my raincoat boots and umbrella
So he can’t ever rain on my parade
