"Easy Like A Summer Breeze" (轻盈如夏日微风)
"Easy Like A Summer Breeze" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Anyone know how fast this thing can go? I want to feel the wind in my hair! Rev the engine, increase the speed! I'm leaving all my worries behind! Time’s arrow neither stays still nor reverses. It merely marches forward. It keeps going. Racing. Zipping. Faster. There’s no time to look back. Very much like Salvador Dali’s Clothed Automobiles (1941) I’m shedding the old and revealing my true exterior. Let the wind ruffle my hair, skin, and clothes...after all I’m very easy going. I am reborn...I finally feel like my true self you know? It’s an ancient Chinese thought that “when the wind blows, insects are born”. This is referenced in the traditional Chinese character for “wind” or feng (風), which is a conjunction of two pictographs, “insect” (虫) placed inside the character for “origin” (凡). And just like those critters, I let myself get carried away by the warm summer breeze. Would you care to join me?
