Because Enjah is so nice to me, she sent me a postcardified DVD when she went to Yosemite recently. I'd never heard of such a thing - I am such a RL noob. Anyway, I have watched part* of it, and at first all I could do was analyse the video editing (as that's what I'm working on). Then I imagined being the cameraman and could quite see how the shots tied in and which shots he or she probably gleefully though of as reelly kewl (like the deer in velvet nibbling the Queen Anne's Lace). Then I started to see it as a strange document chronicling the way Late Mankind separated himself from Nature (i.e. everything else), then applied tiny doses of it therapeutically by standing in groups gawking at small waterfalls or riding bicycles along macadam paths. It began to seem extremely odd to me, so I turned it off and will look at the as-yet unseen 70% of Chapter One and the other 6 chapters (!) later.
As a time traveler I can only express wonder.
