accidents Of Nature
Here some light to puncture the gloom, an accident to brighten the day. W. G. Sebald's writing is beautifully gloomy, a master of darkness and melancholy relieved by the watery light of a dreary northern climate. His writing chronicles the life of a lonely soul, intimately (dis)connected to human kind and aware of the alienation that binds 'us' with distance. Place was crucial in his life, he watched and observed whilst being inside -- a paradox to be sure.
T OO as well …also is a site that chronicles these kinds of experiences and encounters, call them sublime moments, or the time of disappearing things, or doublings in time-space.
How perfectly the glitter is captured by the dew: what began as a child's game has been transformed into a quiet magic by the overnight dew.
