The railway tracks
The abandoned servo
I was leaning against the building, playing it by bashing my elbows into it. I thought to myself ‘I’m probably going to hurt myself here’, but I felt fine afterwards.
The car dance/confrontation
The illnesses and the injuries
The vegetarian option
The kid who said “that’s cool”
The giddy thrill of playing and hanging out with so many ridiculously talented people
The unexpected arrivals
The dancers who appeared out of nowhere
My fingers were numb after holding the gong for a couple of hours. The feeling mostly came back the next day; but even now, over a week later, part of my index finger is still numb. Or is it calloused?
The beauty so intense I felt I had to look away…but didn’t
‘We are all going to die’
The trying and failing, but trying anyway
Walking away and coming back
Liberté, égalité, fraternité
The motion (is its own reward)
Horsham Roadhouse, 1:30am
Space is the place
The dead rabbit
My feet broke through a damp part of the salt pan. Walking back across the lake, I noticed blood in the footprints I made (left foot). Two of my toes were cut; they must have been sliced by salt crystals when I fell through the surface. I bled all the way back across the lake.
The river dance
The table walk
