a layering of places (0706) on events(1107)

travelling as a microcosm of an event:
a three- step process, each with its own phase/demands/questions.


1. embarkation or the constant battle
the bolder the declaration, the greater the faith (usually blind) required.

are you a skeptic.
what practical miracles you do need, and whose authority.
does this god de-legitimise another; how do you settle allegiances.
when do you trust.

2. the hook or the dance
sometimes you pass by pockets of true romanticism among the landscape of a limpid life; a lilting strain from afar makes your heart beat that much faster, you hear the beat in tandem, and imagine now you are alive, when perhaps you were previously not; youre hooked, whether by a place, a song, a person.
you might stop and jostle for a better glimpse, entranced by the meaning they bring you.

do you stay for the ride.
when will you finally join in- the music only lasts so long.

3. end
much of the time, we leave because the Ticket says so.
the time-stamp demands we adhere to plans pre-decided. we obey the Ticket in our hands because we stand sober of 1. blind faith, and 2. the strains of music werent enough to lure us back.

(the end is in itself a gaping question)
