Challenging the Sea

challenging the seaJust came across this very, very old photo taken in Carlsbad, CA, July 2008. There are so very few photos of myself that I like—-time has told: this remains my favorite. When it was taken, I was staging this impromptu fairytale-ish idea about a “Samurai Who Challenged the Sea” to a duel. I would have turned it into a page-long short story, but never could figure out how to make the idea make enough sense EVEN for a fairytale. (At least, without anthropomorphizing the sea.)

Still~ I love this strong sense it has of foolhardy ambition, like a Wuxia-Icarus…. It definitely suits me!
