ON THE CRATER FLOOR:
Meteor Crater, Arizona



...the Wanderling













Wanderling, it's against the rules to be on the crater floor!


"My Uncle had given me a Huge Black Feather that, as young boy, had once belonged to me that I thought had been lost forever to the ravages of time and of which I remember was nearly as wide as the span of my hand and as long as I, a ten year old boy, was tall. Without my knowledge he had kept it carefully wrapped and tied in soft buckskin, hidden away from prying eyes all these years. He told me he "was getting up there" and wanted to ensure the correct "passage" of the feather. He said for me to secrete the feather away and arrange to have, upon my death, someone very close to me take it to the crater and in a certain rite, burn it. Instead, not for me, but in deference to my Uncle and his legacy, unbeknownst to anybody, including any crater authorities, on a windy, bitter-cold night at exactly midnight March 18th, on the closest full moon to the spring equinox following his death, using a special box kite based on a Da Vinci design, as the cold wind howled down the crater wall and up the otherside, I tied the feather to the string as close to the kite as I could and ran it out hundreds of yards into the night sky. As the full moon passed directly overhead and the pull of the kite and string was taut and nearly straight up, I let the string slip from my fingers, eventually allowing the end of it to pass from my hand."
