Mankind has opted for monoculture, a desert of boredom.
We travel to escape – vertically up a mountain or into the seas’ depths, horizontally across continents into remoteness. We look for adventure and magic, to discover our inner power awakened in survival.
And while I know I am an agent of destruction of the very world I yearn for, I nevertheless must go and see it. For what else is there but cultures formed of fragments and debris from another time, pieced together in another way.
