But Heraclitus said...

The owner of this elegant piece of automobile equipment has, well, upgraded it. In front of his house, at a narrow curve on the slopes of the Serra de Sintra, Portugal, is now parked a brand new blue tricycle. So, is everything really in a state of flux? ‘You very silly person’, Parmenides would answer, ‘of course not.’ 'No?' ‘No. The new tricycle is; the old one is not.’

He does have a point. Still, I’d rather publish this eleven year-old photograph than a picture of the trycicle that now is, for I find the one that is not more in accordance with the poetic exuberance of Sintra.
