Each day in February, I’ll set a timer for 20 minutes and write a “sketch” inspired by the prompt for the day.
Day 8: Circles
Here are a few of my favorite circles.
Inside the part of a breaking wave that curls over. I switched from surfing to body surfing because the latter gives you more time in the barrel.
A trick that light plays underwater making all the light above the surface appear to fit in a circle. It’s what I see looking up when I free dive.
The symbol of Zen Buddhism, a single swift brushstroke expressing the present moment.
I won’t leave the house without one on.
“But I have the time on my phone,” You say…
Anyone who’s into watches knows that’s not the point.
Not because they look good on the ‘Gram but because their round shape is what holds the plane together! The world’s first jet airliner had big square windows that lead to cracks at the corners causing the plane to disintegrate in mid-air.
Goggle Eyes and Goggle Tan Lines
If you look up “goggle eyes,” you’ll find loads of articles on how to get rid of the marks swimming goggles tend to leave. I love getting these lines, it reminds me I’m putting in work at the pool.
Especially after a swim.
