Well said, all of it. I’m having a blast shooting my longbow. I’m practicing and I’m getting better. One aspect of these aesthetics you write of is the feeling I get when it all comes together and the arrow, released seemingly on its own, finds the precise mark it was meant for. When whatever we’re involved in at the moment all comes together, it’s as close to a moment of grace as I know. Words are not necessary, a smile will do.
