At night in the bush we can drift into myth without knowing. Our waking reality and its routines fade.
We lose definition, we lose perspective. We drift. Nothing and everything simultaneously. Alive and opaque. Are we are still standing on this precipice 500 years from now? When we stare out into the blackness, what stirs? Where does the line between myth and reality now sit? Does it still exist? Do we still drift?
