In motion

Many people came to rollerskate and visit with friends at the Empire Roller Rink on March 21.

Forward, backward, up, down and around and around: Motion is everywhere.

(Even things that seem static aren’t.)

Bands of headlights are veins in the night, the pulse of a highway that never sleeps.

Children look upon static loved ones as animals take them on a whimsical ride.

And raindrops pour out of the sky, forcing faces into hiding under colorful canopies.
