shuttlecock


The approach. My chest is fully open, ears back, eyes almost defocused. An imposing structure before me, I like to have my sense of scale fully on. This is one of those subjects I'm going to envelop and be enveloped by. I wish I could fully describe the openness I feel at times like these- to see detail and entirety at the same time. It is a trait we possess that can be nurtured. I am challenged by this opportunity to see with an absence of thought. Moving around and through an object in space is so metaphoric to me...the same opportunity presents itself in life every day. Seeing situations, particularly conflict, requires this kind of openness to everything at once and all the possible solutions. They just percolate up. We just have to let them.

Holy Moly-shuttle cock is coolio. Wig Wam Burners were such a part of our shared Oregon history back in the 60's and 70's.
