Midnight River

“Sometimes the lone walker feels that he is moving backwards in time, and sometimes that he stands at the threshold of a different world, though whether it is heaven or hell is anybody’s guess.”

Olivia Laing “To The River: A Journey Beneath the Surface” 2011

“Reizēm vientuļš kājāmgājējs jūtas it kā virzītos atpakaļ laikā, un reizēm – ka stāvētu uz citas pasaules sliekšņa; to, vai tā paradīze vai elle, gan var tikai minēt.”

Olivia Laing “To The River: A Journey Beneath the Surface” 2011
