What’s your most recent en plein air (in the open air) experience?
With the views out the window, even sitting here in my chair feels like open air much of the time.
And Sunday I was out in the open air playing golf. Yesterday morning I walked home from dropping off the Hilux at the service station (to replace a couple of broken rubber parts), and had Huia along for company, and in the afternoon we reversed the process, walking back to pick it up again.
It’s been about 6 years since I let my pilot’s licence lapse, so it’s been a while since I was at the controls of a Cesna, and I have flown over most of NZ over the last 25 years, including a flight to the Chatham Islands (over 400 miles of ocean each way – in a Beechcraft Queenair).
And I spend a lot of time in conceptual spaces that are infinite in all dimensions (including, recursively, dimensionality itself), and my limited mind does its best to grasp something of scope of what is present.
So yes – it is an amazing thing this thing called life, this experience of being, this profound mix of levels of interacting systems, of the random and the lawful and the intentional.
Great to see you guys having such fun in the air 😉
