"when i went overseas, and then came back again it made me so aware of my connection to place (that being melbourne) it's knowing the names of the streets, its some kind of undercurrent in the atmosphere...sometimes i get chills just from sitting in a certain spot and letting the world rush over me..." Adelaideyes connection to place is something that is slowly built up over a long time, these fleeting roadside moments in other lands and peoples dreamscapes are held briefly in wonder for a moment, but it takes time to really be somewhere.
Humans are funny creatures, we cant keep up with this fast world we have created, because essentially we are very slow.

and today sara told me that some people say that a person's life energy, or spirit travels at the pace of a camel.... i agree

yes camel... or even human paced...before we invented all these neat ways to travel really fast we used to travel only by foot... and a friend once told me that when native american indians travel they used to have 'rest days' to wait for their spirits to catch up with them. and then they keep walking...its amazing how long it takes for all of you to catch up with the rest of you when you catch a plane somewhere...
