Life is fast. So choosing to stand removed a moment - to cast a big net to catch and taste what's happening out there while you quietly count your breaths - is a wonderful respite. Yes, yes I know that's by no means an exciting strategy or even a nominally daring one. But it's quaint and nice and I'm all up for quaint and nice at the moment. I don't plan to post much. I much prefer dwelling on the mental morsels of others anyways - for hopefully that is where inspiration as well as indigestion lies. So respite and a good meal - what more could a traveller in this life ask for?
