about

On the same canoe trip on the Petawawa River I mentioned in the notes on "The River" we were portaging around a rapid too dangerous to run. While carrying a big pack I accidentally got off the path onto what looked like a path but slowly revealed itself to not be a path.

There was no real chance of getting lost because all I had to do was follow the river, so I picked my way through the dense undergrowth and up and down some tricky hills.

Suddenly I came to a little clearing with a view of the intense rushing water at the end of the rapid. The crisp air, the sound, the beautiful autumn foliage, the sky, the smells, my tired back, and everything hit me and I thought:

"The air, the air, the air. I wish I could stop and leave myself right here."

lyrics

In the interest of the truth
I'm a mess and I don't know what to do
With respect to my despair
It's quiet, but kinda always there

In the interest of the new
I can't see it, I can't feel it
But I'm trying to push through
And I'm trying to repair
My broken thoughts and my ugly wants
'Cause I'm running out of years

The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
