I was never a fan of the carousel. It is not dynamic, going round and round in endless circles. I prefer to go forward with the occasional step back. I love the step back – or even to the side. They are the ones that move us in radical ways. You have no choice but to think differently, respond differently – nothing is known. You don’t experience that going round and round. Rarely have I been scared of the outcome. That said, I find carousel horses quite scary. Why would anyone choose to journey on something that looks so pained at the thought and just struggles over terrain it already knows?
