We’ll bury him by the stream. This moment dies and is followed by another moment which also dies. Moment to moment I go.

“There’s a loss of immediacy in one’s experience. You have to count on memory more and daily rhythms less. But memory is a muse, after all, a girl with a vital life of her own.” —Elizabeth Spencer

A Way of the World, retracing Nicolas Bouvier’s improbable 1953 trip: a reflection on travel, politics and art.
If there was one Kickstarter project to support this Summer, this would be it. Two guys are going to follow a route taken by two other guys some 60 years earlier, from former Yugoslavia to Pakistan, in a battered second hand car, armed only with a camera and their wits (and probably a few fixers)!
The finished product will be a truly honest and potentially raw account of the route as it is today, a true document of change; political, geographical and human. This is their blog, their kickstarter page is here, take a look if you like the sound of it and share if you care :)

The lips of time leech to the fountain head;

Love drips and gathers, but the fallen blood

Shall calm her sores.

And I am dumb to tell a weather’s wind

How time has ticked a heaven round the stars.

Dylan Thomas, ‘The force that through the green fuse drives the flower’ from Miscellany One, (London: Aldine Press, 1963)

I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody.
