ON SKIPPING STONES

I love skipping rocks.
Love.
The hunting for and finding of flat, thin, round rocks is intoxicating.
The quarry creates a grid on the ground in front of you.
Texturized.
Wild.
Easy prey.
I run rampant.

The letting go is not easy.

After the search and the find,
why not keep?
What if the water
is not right
scavenges
hides for good
that which took work to find.

Took time.

A stone may be
kept
in a pocket
waiting
wanting
wishing.

Or may be cast.
Voted.
Thrown.
Out.

Why not throw?
Why throw?

Who knows.
Sometimes you should
do it
not
wait
not care.

You can always swim out after it.

EXPERIENCE ZERO GRAVITY – BETTY WANTS IN

Experience Zero Gravity from Betty Wants In on Vimeo.

Soo I’m a little obsessed with BASE jumping. And wing suits. And the idea of flying. Although it’s something that I may never do, largely because my desire to remain alive trumps my desire to fly, it’s something that I will always wish I could. I know that many people BASE jump every year and only a small portion of them die, I can’t get past the “what if” factor.

So I resort to watching videos like this and riding my bike while pretending to fly. That is good enough for moi.
