Trei saptamani in Anzi

Atata de faina a fost cartea asta! Research 🙂

………..

Pentru a cunoaste lumea cu adevarat, priveste adanc in fiinta ta. Pentru a te cunoaste pe tine cu adevarat, fii interesat de lume. [Rudolf Steiner]

…………….

In aceste aproape trei saptamani am facut tot ce ne-a stat in putinta sa meritam calatoria, sa ne ridicam la nivelul oamenilor locului si, mai ales, sa nu lasam urme ale trecerii noastre. I-am intrebat pe localnici mai mult decat am citit in ghidurile de calatorie; am mancat ce-am gasit in piete, n-am ales din meniurile restaurantelor; am baut ceaiuri facute in strada, nu carbogazoase din marketuri; am dormit mai mult in paturile si sub paturile lor decat in sacii nostri de dormit… N-am cautat confortul, am cautat sa ne conformam; am vrut cunoastere nemijlocita, nu informatie procesata; reproducerilor fidele le-am preferat imperfectiunea facuta de mana. Am vrut lucrurile naturale si autentice, chiar daca murdare; traitul, nu muzeificatul; ruina, nu finisatul. Imi imaginez ca starea ideala a calatorului este ceva apropiat invizibilului. Un calator adevarat nu perverteste, nu schimba, nu intervine, nu lasa urme, nici semne. I’m not here, but I was there! este mantra calatorului adevarat. Trecerea trebuie sa fie discreta, sa nu perturbe ordinea, linistea, obiceiurile locului. Un calator observa si conserva. Vrea sa se asemene diferentei, nu sa semene variatia. El merge ca si cum s-ar ascunde: vrea sa vada, nu sa fie vazut. Potecasul, trecatorul, drumetul, calatorul sunt salamandre care devin una cu mediul, se diminueaza pe sine. Calatoria e deghizare si uitare de sine. Calatorim si pentru ca vrem sa fim altcineva. Curiozitatea a ceea ce ai putea fi, a ceea ce esti altundeva. Explorarea potentialitatii de sine. Calatoresti pentru a arunca din lest, pentru a-ti fi o povara mai usoara. „A te indeparta! A ramane! A reveni! A pleca! Toata mecanica sociala incape in aceste cuvinte”, spune Vallejo.

Forest Men

 

1.India (Majuli Island) – Jadav Payeng

2.New Zealand (Hinewai Nature Reserve) – Hugh Wilson

“We’re not planting the trees back. We could never do it on a such large land. Nature is planting the trees back in totally ecologically appropriate and scientifically interesting ways.”

“Our intention was just to do the right thing in this corner of the world…but if that is repeated over and over again, well, the possibilities are immense. The problems are immense, but the solutions are immense too.”

…because forests are for-rest
