 And perhaps whatever reality there is in the notion of coherent individual continuity is just a function of the physical existence.  - Aldous Huxley, Eyeless in Gaza


Location: Iceland

The island is gorgeous. It is a teardrop shape—a shape of beauty and sadness, of joy and the carnivalesque. It's also silent—except for an odd birdcall from the south-east. It sounds like a wooden peg board, like the sort you get at school in music lessons. It also makes a whooping, taunting sound. It knows my situation.
