river running

In 2017 I began keeping an online log of my weekly runs, documenting my miles, the many versions of the wind I experienced, the daily progress of the leaves in the floodplain forest beside the Mississippi River I witnessed, and my thoughts about the run. This series of 100 tankas was created using those log entries. It explores the questions: What’s the difference between ritual and routine? Are habits always mundane, or can they sometimes be spiritual acts?
