Swallows // Siem Reap // Cambodia
What is it about birds that we inherently associate with freedom?
Is it their ease of relocation? The ability to fly? Needing not to be grounded?
What does this association say about our own desires as human? About the current society we've built?
To be human means to move, but the very definition of a "civilized" society means to abandon the necessity our human ancestors had to constantly move.
Our culture only seems to value movement when it's upwardly in relation to material successes. And we wonder why we're so dis-eased as a population.
