AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy Birthday, Chatwin


Bruce Chatwin was born on this date in 1940.

I haven't got any special religion this morning. My God is the God of Walkers. If you walk hard enough, you probably don't need any other god. Sluggish and sedentary peoples, such as the Ancient Egyptians -- with their concept of an afterlife journey through the Field of Reeds -- project on to the next world the journeys they failed to make in this one.
