“Something I like to do a lot is just sit by the water when there’s a current

and just stare into the water. I don’t fish, I don’t hunt, I don’t scuba, don’t spear, don’t boat, don’t play basketball or football   ̶  I excel at staring into space. I’m really good at that.” — Iggy Pop * * * “Kingfisher meditation”—watercolor painting by Mary O’Connor © 2015
