Quotes 2017 #60

"As we already found in the case of the shingle beach, seen from the perspective of the sea the ground is much more complex and dynamic that we might have thought. Far from being the hard surface of materiality that we had imagined, upon which all else rests, it reappears as a congeries of heterogeneous materials, thrown together by the vicissitudes of life in the weather world. Indeed wherever we look, the ground bears witness to the liveliness of the processes that have gone on or are going into its formation---to the effects of rain, wind, frost and so on."

Tim Ingold, Being Alive.
