Running encounters when I free myself internally, a positive refrain, joyous & curious, bursting with encounters, with singularities and multiplicities
From my running log: 9.5.16; 08:31; 260 min; In Search of The Corryvreckan. Gradually the surroundings seeped beneath my skin releasing me from my screaming mind negativity; lungs and senses opening, the clag from my nasal passages was cleared, my breathing settled, my smile appeared, and I began to run with joy. Cuckoos, cotton grass, heather, bracken unfurling; mud, gravel, twisting and turning, ever upward and onward towards space; I saw my shadow on the ground in the height of the day, I merged in and out of the land with every step, turn, wave of my arm - I was captured, my skin no longer my own.
