"Tree-lined hills and blue skies… or no. That’s cliche.
A bird in flight! Ugh, even worse!
When we talk about freedom, we restrict ourselves to so few images.
Images of freedom should be as liberating as the feeling itself!
I want to talk about freedom as a drum set being thrown down a hill.
As opening a book one night, and water gushing from the pages, until my life is a lake and I swim away.
Or as a bird in flight, with all the dependence on physics and exhaustion and food supply and merciless gravity that the actuality implies.”
