Take Off..to launch into flight or to run away..
It's interesting how those words can have such conflicting meanings. One moving forward, the other, moving back. Almost every situation in my life has, at some point, required me to face the question of take off - which way to go? Which brings one to the next question of - what next? In 'suspended animation'
(my new favourite phrase) after take off, we're often left wondering what comes next. Do we land on both feet or crash and burn? Does this skateboarder nail the landing or wipe out? I suppose that doesn't really matter.. as long as he attempted it anyway..Taken outside St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney.
