One of the best titled leaps we’ve seen (in our vast collection) is William Wegman’s For a Moment He Forgot Where He Was a Jumped into the Ocean.
THAT is how we would love to live our life: to be SO in the moment, we forget all propriety and self-imposed limits and LEAP into something wonderful…
It reminded us of our favorite haiku by Shiki*. It has a slightly different meaning: more about persevering into the unknown to find the wondrous sea and possibilities…
Into fog, through the fog
We rowed. Then:
The wide sea —so blue, so bright!
And then there is this from Basho:
The old pond;
A frog jumps in:
Sound of water.
