Subject: the magic of place

when one thinks a place within view with no vistal coordinates there is one
kind of magic possible (soft, fluffy, fairy tale).

when one thinks a place within view with coordinates there is another kind
(go - 'get there' (to the dream of the real) - movement, directional ("away
from here"), toward x - journey).

i love both kinds, but my favorite is always the one with coordinates,
pathfinderly mooded and westerly, westerly, always westerly, going west,
going all the way west, clear up and unto, finally, the grailed Pacific

The pacific wall in itself is not magic but the end of magic (the end of
the road -john barth), but it is always the "on the way there" to the wall,
to the real dream of the real, aye, now there's the bewitchment!!
