My favourite creatures are the ones that stubbornly refuse labels and categorisation.
Deciphering the floral form of a Crinoid rooted to the sea
floor, I am transported back 450 million years,
to a time where all of life is water vascular, sessile and filter-feeding.
Watching its animal arms feeding in the water column,
I am invited into a world where embracing duality
is a perfectly acceptable way to exist
