"Everything is broken," Bob Dylan sings, "take a deep breath, feel like you're choking."

It seems that way. But I am enjoying my walking reveries and so will let John Berger have the final word:

"There is no question of looking away from the modern world and its practices. There is no question of a Pre-Raphaelite flight back to the Middle Ages. It is rather that Dante advances toward us. And in the specific purgatory of the modern world, created and maintained by corporate capitalism, every injustice is grounded in that unilinear view of time, for which the only relation conceivable is that between cause and effect. In contrast to this, in defiance of this, the 'single synchronic act' is that of loving."
