Splash! Leap!

“Splash! Leap! is a result of planets aligning just right! After a dinner meeting with some Twin Cities Women’s Choir fly fishing enthusiasts, I set out to find a text that would do justice to the banter about being one with nature, being fully present and alive, playfulness, and the beauty of interplay between water, light and fishing line. I found a gem in Ailm Travler’s essay, "Run-Off", from an anthology entitled “A Different Angle" : Fly Fishing Stories by Women. Like Travler (a.k.a. Peggy Beck), I have tried to capture both playful and meditative feelings in my piece.
