"Leaving New Orleans also frightened me considerably. Outside of the city limits, the heart of darkness, the true wasteland begins." — John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces
Nature always wins,
Don't Get Bogged Down.
We occupy an environment built on and within the Swamp. The Swamp is always fighting to return and claim what's rightfully hers.
SWAMP'S NOT DEAD.
“What happens after the apocalypse? The water recedes and the process begins again. The unconscious has flooded the fantasy and, perhaps, transformed its architecture. The organism limps up. With a new geometry, a new algebra begins to emerge. Previously unthinkable forms emerge from the ground like exogenous plant species. New words of unknown provenance appear in the mouth. Circulatory patterns change. The Swamp recedes further. It is still there somewhere. It will have its revenge.” —Timothy Lachin, 2010
The Swamp holds answers to more questions than we’ve yet learned to ask.
“The whole concept of 'wild' was decidedly European, one not shared by the original inhabitants of this continent. What we called 'wilderness' was to the Indian a homeland, 'abiding loveliness' in Salish or Piegan. The land was not something to be feared or conquered, and 'wildlife' were neither wild nor alien; they were relatives.” — Doug Peacock
“Nothing truly wild is unclean.” — John Muir
