“We are surrounded by the greatest of free shows. Places. Most of them made by man, remade by man.”
“The search for Utopian landscapes is probably an endless one, but I do know that by staying in one place I will never find them.”
“With this stone and this grass, with this red earth, this place was received and made and remade. Its generations are distinct but all suddenly present.”
“What I have tried to do is explore the natural history of this unofficial countryside, what it is, and how it works, not so much as an explorer as a curious passer-by. We begin again.”
"Take me back to beautiful England/ And the grey, damp filthiness of ages/ Fog rolling down behind the mountains/ And on the graveyards, and dead sea-captains."
“Higher worlds that you uncover/ Light the path you want to roam.”
Roky Erickson/ Tommy Hall
