Description: Another photo from my Deerskin series, which has just been clamoring for my artistic attention. I feel like I have to run to keep up with the inspiration in this set, and there are never, ever enough hours or days or props or models to do it quickly enough. Patience is a virtue, and I will try to exercise it... but I am so eager to shoot more of these.
In Deerskin, Lissar finds, after her visit from the Moon Woman, that she has something like a heightened sense of intuition or instinct. She describes it as a "windless wind." <i> "It was like following the direction of the wind beating in her face: if she fell off the point, she could feel the change at once; if the wind shifted, she felt that at once also; but where the wind blew from she did not know. Indeed, she thought, orienting herself to the- smell? sound? touch of air against her cheek?- of that directionless direction, wind would carry more messages of its source. Wind would be warm or cold; wet or dry... this sensing was a trembling of the nerves..."</i>
This sense, the windless wind, proves important and useful many times through the story.
