  • I've required an outdoor sport for some time.
    Being born next to the Atlantic created a profound ache
    for vast, virgin and unowned space.
    Thus imbued, one is marked forever
    and seeks it out...on the desert,
    in mountains and always on the ocean.
    I chose falconry as a pathway sport
    because it leads me to places
    less and less available
    in these crowded times.
    I want silence
    to hear the wind
    and yes, wingbeats will do.
