Late November, I noticed the shadow of a flag projected onto a house by a sodium streetlamp. The shadow almost completely enveloped the front of the house, undulating in the wind, covering the windows.
This image held me, grounded me, and for a moment kept me present.
I wondered what the rhythmic motion of the shadows must look like from within, how it would fill the window, the calming ebb and flow as it moved with the wind.
There was something so striking about this huge shadow; how, despite its sheer enormity it had been striped of all symbolism and existed only in its physicality.
