Putting on the brakes

I was reminded of my new bicycle brakes early this morning as I came to an abrupt halt at the first stop sign. 
In this moment, I was reminded, while movement is critical, equally important is the ability to slow down or stop. Sometimes abruptly.

Last year at this time, pneumonia taught me what an abrupt stop felt like. This year, I’ll just stick with the new brakes on my commuter bike.
