Hammond Raffetto Art
Jewel in the Crown
There are moments, and then there are moments. This is one of the latter, unforgettable, indelible, when time did not so much as stop as it slowed, and kept slowing. While this beautiful animal flowed through the space created by the school of Pacific Double-Saddle Butterflyfish, and the metronome pulse in your ears braked to a crawl, and the sound of water faded away, and you watched this deus ex aqua rule everything, and in that moment, you felt as though you understood everything.
