    A love letter to Anthony McCall’s You and I, Horizontal:

Dear You & I, Horizontal,
I love you so. When we met I loved your dark and your light.  My tunnel vision for you brought me closer to the source of that light.   
As we experienced each other I know I turned your one dimensional world into a 3D experience. Still, I fear that the minute I left, you were exactly the same as when I found you.
Although I know my presence in your life changed you at the time, as you changed me, I couldn’t really touch you.
Our time together was marked by droplets, I thought they were tears of happiness.  Now I think not.
I see the reel you but you only see your projection of yourself on me.  That isn’t love.
