Haunch High Snow

posted on 2023-08-04, 18:40 authored by Anastasia R. Stelse

Longing. We all long for something--love, immortality, a place that doesn't exist anymore, the past. Haunch High Snow explores the conflicting way we long to be remembered and are forgotten, the need to preserve our histories to find ourselves and simultaneously the way we must forget in order to survive. We are tied to the past--ours', others'--even as we forget, even as we try to move on. It shapes and creates us, our world. It is a web. Human. Animal. Snow falls, but in melting leaves behind nutrient rich water; nature revives itself again come spring.
