Really Short Pieces
This piece was written for a Competition. The Theme of the Competition was A Field of Battle.
For years, my daughter and I spoke about how the physical arts were never given the same media attention as sports. If you have ever attended an ice skating competition or a dance eisteddfod you quickly realise the teams are as competitive as any sports team. The ice arena and dance floor are transformed into a colourful battlefield. To make things a little more interesting, they have a strict time limit and only one chance.
This is one of the pieces I wrote for Carol Schwarzman's exhibition Star Zero. I wondered how the old explorers first saw land after months at sea and how they charted the new land.
