what if everything in the world was one inch smaller?
think about that for a moment.
the air is cooler now.
i try to not step on leaves as i walk.

Oh Miss Smith you are such an inspiration and I am sorry that it has been a while since I have had a chance to say it lately. I wanted to tell you about a couple of my favorite sounds as a response to your previous post. My favorite sounds are the sound of fingers moving across the strings of a guitar and most of all the sounds of footsteps and the rush of excited multinational languages in Venice.
Now I am curious if everything was one inch smaller would there really be any difference? Everything would be in proportion (of course I am assuming that things smaller than an inch would not dissapear all together)? I must continue pondering.
Thank you again for all of the inspiration!

Hm. If everything was an inch shorter, I suppose The Everything would take up much less space.
That is the kind of question I might hear from one of my sons, and I Love the way your mind comes up with questions like that!
Just tonight my 7 year old asks,
“What if we walked on the walls instead of the ground, like if gravity was sideways, not downward.”

Keri Keri,
I’m loving your current morph and subsequent trajectories.
You seem to be in a beautiful hazy, cerebral yet tactile space.
I hope it’s catching!

Does the siz of the actual plane get smaller too? If it does, then it would most likely be impossible to tell that anything got smaller. There would be nothing to compare it to, and your eyes would be smaller also, so the images would look the same.
That’s my theory. Probably wrong but… oh well.

Hi Keri,
I tried to comment on your post of the 13th September…about sounds… but it didn’t allow me to…so here it is:
“Pergolesi…and the beating of my heart.
Found sounds?…I’m going to start paying attention…there is always so many sounds we miss…glad you reminded me…I’m going to search and find sounds like shells on the beach”
