Bull | Omak, WA | August 2019

Rodeo #3 | I recently leaped from a low ladder and rattled my bones and brain. No injuries, but during my one-second freefall I realized I had not left Earth under my own power in quite sometime. No jumps to grab a tree branch. No belly-flops into a swimming pool. Not even a few skips just for the hell of it. Iā€™d been anchored for months, maybe more, with at least one foot on the ground. So I cruised my memory for remnants of a long-held boyhood belief: That we have a hidden mental switch that can turn off gravity. Find it, flick it on, and I ā€” you, too ā€” will be able to fly.
