If you descend at precisely the correct speed and trajectory, it is possible to elude gravity. That Newtonian force, which constantly draws everything to everything, can be momentarily overcome. Floating freely amidst this parabolic arc, conflicting emotions arise. Bliss, perhaps. Certainly some form of liberation. Freedom from the laws of physics. Freedom from our fellow man. Detachment, isolation, loneliness; the flip-side of the same coin. All in all, it is the unbearable lightness of being. The thrills and fears of solitude, my ascent in adagio. [Margaret Johnson]
