You should take the Staten Island Ferry to visit flutter at Tattfoo gallery. While on the Ferry (a sure entry in the list of top ten trips to experience the sublime New York City), it is suggested you take a moment to go outside, push your body against the railing and feel the wind off the ocean as you see the hugeness of Manhattan recede.

Even if the wind stings your cheeks, or makes your eyes water at least you can be thankful that this vessel is on the earth in your medium of wind and sun and that you are not in your fifth month of a voyage to Mars, in a cramped cabin breathing your own recycled air.

Every molecule in your body every system which makes you you or the bird a bird evolved in this environment of wind and sun which is as old as life on this planet. The wind is a crucial element in your life support system.

Can you imagine not being able to tell the difference between the smells of wind at the sea, on a field, near a highway, when it snows? Everyday you can feel the joy of the astronaut who upon having landed safely in the ocean opens his portal and, home at last, breathes in his air, his precious natural air.

Can you feel the wind? Does the bird? The throw away?
