Being Visible, Part ll


Another way to be visible is to know how to get noticed. Often just being yourself rather than conforming to the accepted standards of . . . whatever . . . work just fine. This young lady and her dreadlocks caught my attention as she was locking her bike. I have always had a secret desire to have dreadlock-able hair. Unfortunately, I don't but but admire the daring of those can and do wear their hair that way. I think she looks happy and confident; yet another way to get visible.

Although, not with or on a bike, this Beagle knows how to get attention - sit inside a planter box! Sitting inside a planter box will get a Beagle noticed everytime and likely earn him a scratch behind the ears and a dog cookie.

As I was saying, before I looked again at my comment and realized I could not, in good conscience as a writer, leave it as it was...

Love Dreadlocks Girl, LOVE the beagle! And you've inspired me to dig out my bright yellow macintosh - Talbot's, actually, several years old, but in perfect condition and VERY, um, visible for a Talbot's piece... :-)

Suddenly, the vented, translucent, nearly invisible cycling rain jacket is SO "last month."

Visibility, getting noticed is GOOD however you may achieve it! Really in all seriousness, I like the bright yellow rain slicker. No mylar bike balloon outfits please ...(as in balloon boy) HA!
