My little blog is not very explanatory at the moment, so I thought I would add a bit of detail. The questions I would think you would have would be about my selection of title, ‘water ouzel’, and the complete randomness of the entries.
First off, you have to understand, I want the world. I want to know everything, to experience everything, to be able to write or blog about everything. So it’s going to be random, as topics catch my interest. And the ouzel is part of that. I love the image of the little tiny bird, flitting and bathing in the spray of rapids or a waterfall, darting in here or there for a bit of food or a just a splash. I want that. I want to be able to dive all the way down to the bottom of the river and come up and out, having tasted the entirety of the flow. The ‘random’ quote on the preceding page also helps to reflect this, and the things I am curious about. I want to see what is beneath the surface of the age we live in, beneath the surface of who we are, both as individuals and as a planet.
