The location was in front of my house in Bethesda, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came from the years of engaging in the practice of giving the remainder in my water cup a symbolic toss into the street in front of my house as a sort of stamp of completion for
the run of the day. I often will give a twist to my wrist as I let the water fly from the cup. The twist is done with the hope that some sort of recognizable form will emerge from the
arc in the falling water when it hits the street.
After years of engaging in this very low effort expression of entertainment - I finally have found an image as an end result that people can quickly look at and understand what they are seeing
without me having to say very much at all. Well, lets just say I do not have to explain the image - but I sure have to give a briefing on my water fling technique - which everyone seems to
get a kick out of.
The After Take: I do not know if anyone has taken up the sport after hearing my explanation of it, but that is quite ok. The laughs shared at sharing how much I enjoy this mindless
release makes the image a treasure.
Here is hoping maybe you also, have a little something that you do just before you go into your dwelling after a long day. There are lots of posters that talk about it being the journey,
not the destination, I gotta say - I think there are times when the destination is the absolute winner if it were made into a contest.
Wishing you all the very best,

Its like a centipede/scorpion hybrid. I think its really cool you did this with no additional planning other than your habit of tossing it out at the end of your day. Truly impressive.
