Reading a passage in ”M Train”, one of those strings of words in which you could linger forever, I realize what it is it enlightens within me. A longing, so often walking beside me, yet often overheard.
But not any longer.
Now, coming to the surface.
Now – ordering to be heard.
And what is it, this longing?
Well, it’s often reflected in the images I encounter in magazines, TV commercials etc.
The vastness of the open space. The mountains, the forests, the call of something ancient in the deep night sky. It’s the mystery of the Stars, the Moon and the planets.
It’s a deep longing for the Universe within;
to travel its vast expances,
to be the modern adventurer.
In one word: freedom.
