Not for Sale
The time and place when we are just on the edge of something is only a slither of space, a moment.
It is a special time when the realisation of the seconds passing can be fully brought into clear focus.
The passage from light to dark, while on the cusp between the solidity of land and the liquidity of water is one of these special moments in the day.
These in-between moments, so brief they are easy to miss, straddle the material and the immaterial.
I wanted to convey the feeling of standing at the edge when the last light has just touched the tops of the mountains and in a few moments all will be shrouded in darkness while the roar of the ocean fills our perception.
One sense replaces another.
I’d love to read your comment.
