About Jeremy T. Bold

Librarian (sometimes anArchivist) Intelligent and outgoing (sometimes ridiculous ;) Capable of entertaining faculty, students and the general public. Skills in multimedia print, audio, and video productions. And I like Catz. Yes, the animalz; I've never seen the musical.

Long, endless WANDering

…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.

Face of Green wheat stocks,
eyes locked in natural thatch –
Waiting for the sun.

lounging in light blue,
the wire’s eyes watch over all  —
time enough for change

seeking summer shade

seeking summer shade,
mites find a horse-shaped shadow —
sunset glows like snow

from high, ripe tables

From August 9, 2011, "On top of Table Butte" by Jessie Veeder Scofield

from high, ripe tables
the whole world seems edible —
rocks crunch under boot

sun-lights spill, drowning

sun-lights spill, drowning
the digging ground in white heat —
black blood bubbles up

in blue times or gold

From July 30, 2011, "Clover, Cowboy, Sunset" by Jessie Veeder Scofield

in blue times or gold,
clovers cannot overcome —
all go to pasture

spills her body ‘cross the land —
Lake Filled-With-Roses

white light from a star

Happy belated 4th of July, y’all!  Just to let you know, we’re all back in our various homes away from ND homes and slaving away on the W.A.N.D. Chronicles.  It was unfortunate that we couldn’t update more from the road, but I’m sure the anticipation is building for the whole story to come out. We’re compiling our journals in the next couple weeks so hopefully we’ll have some journal excerpts to share soon.  But until then, there’s always more nodaiku!

From July 4, 2011, "Sailboat" by Jessie Veeder Scofield

white light from a star
stripes the blue with rows of rose —
a flag waits to wave
