…it felt like we were walking forever at times…VOID — the horizon — that we endlessly stared into…and when the day’s end finally came, the packs crashing at our collapsing feet…silence; we found ourselves free.
At long last, here is some of the footage I collected from the WAND.
I’ve often been meditating on the nature of time since we completed the WAND, especially relative to my time in the City. (Maybe you can tell from the video.)
Over the last year-ish, I’ve gone to a whole new level of relativity; it’s amazing how different the world seems when you are not serving to a Master like the Boss…the Clock…”Society.”
They all demand you at Once, and if you pay them all of your attention, it will likely make you insane.
North Dakota still seems to offer something there: a place beyond the servitude toward these times, a place that is liberated and free. You will discover the world of Non-Obligated Time.
This video features a song called “The Void,” by Ben Gibbard and Jay Farrar; although, I will not claim that all the lyrics speak to this scene, the sound seemed right.
A piece of advice: go wandering, wherever you can. Find a place where there is no time and spend a moment there. Don’t look for the moment, just keep waiting. You won’t find it until after it is realized.
This is a space that few others can understand, a space beyond sanity, and invaluable in a world of schizophrenic times.
