i will be gone for a week, to spend some time in the northern reaches of this continent. not as far north as i would've wanted, but still northern nonetheless. i'll be taking a car up to sanfo, and boarding the amtrak for the coast starlight route up to seattle.
in the meantime, i daydream about the sheer wildness of going to alaska or plunking 10 g's towards a trip to antarctica. isolation! but with the way things are going, they'll be a little bit longer than a daydream.
inside me burns an insatiable desire to explore the world, because i'm certain that it is only in knowing what's outside of me that i can begin to realise the truths inside. i may never really understand, but i might as well have fun trying. even if it slowly kills me.
