Body Language, Bodies of Language


It was our last day in California. We stopped along the beach to watch skateboarders. What struck me besides the shadows crisp against the metal was the lack of chaos  – that there were only a few skateboarders on the course at a time, that turns were being taken. It occurred to me there was some sort of unspoken rule system being followed. A body language and a body of language I didn’t previously notice and I didn’t understand. This is how we move through the world, I thought. Into and out of bodies of language. How much have I missed? There must be a world out there that contains all of the meanings that get lost.
