It’s Earth Day. It’s my daughter’s birthday. And not entirely by coincidence, it’s Launch Day for this blog. Gyroscope-that-takes-you-places is about culture, neighborhoods, and making the world a better place.
It’s about people, especially artists and performers in Cleveland. It’s about places, especially old neighborhoods. And it’s about things: most of the things are made in the old neighborhoods. Most of the things that are not made in those neighborhoods are bicycles.
The bicycle is the miraculous invention that brings all that together. It’s art. It’s technology. It’s transportation on a neighborhood scale. It’s beautiful, clean, green, and convenient. It’s fun. Even a kid can ride one. A bicycle is a gyroscope that takes you places.
Watch this space for news and musings about Northeast Ohio art, artists, and arts districts. About neighborhoods, gardens, and bicycles. About things people are doing to make the world—especially Northeast Ohio—a better, greener, more beautiful place.
Happy birthday to my daughter. Happy Earth Day to you. Sunny days are coming. Get on your bikes and ride.
