wherever i am, i am what is missing

As those who know me will testify I am a huge fan of music, literally any music, I will listen to anything.


So this little story is about an album I bought a couple of years ago! It was a complete impulse buy I’d never

heard of the band or had a clue what the music was like.

But I bought it anyway just for the way it was presented and these words that are written in the sleeve.

In a field

I am the absence

of field.

This is

always the case.

Wherever I am

I am what is missing.

When I walk

I part the air

and always

the air moves in

to fill the spaces

where my body’s been.

We all have reasons

for moving.

I move

to keep things whole.

(Mark Strand 1963)

So I love this little poem and think it fits in well with the whole travelling theme and perhaps why people travel the world.

P.S if you want to listen to the band who actually wrote and made this beautiful album you can here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cvoAdbtVMI

Enjoy and have a great weekend 🙂
