In the development of this idea I was thinking a lot about chance, fate, weight, and the way we lean on certain issues. I was thinking about winning and losing, and also about taking sides. I was thinking about property and ownership. I was thinking about being embraced and belonging or even being un-welcome and turned away. I was thinking about judgement. I was thinking about the middle way. The idea of walking this singular path leads me to think of our path throughout our life, or even lives, and what determines the sides we take and how this can shift throughout time.
