Hurry of the Unharried

The context is very specific to a drive through a given landscape but the image can be applied to our being in the world as

A hurry through which known and strange things pass
The line speaks to me of our modern condition and the sense that both the familiar (known) and the exquisitely bizarre (strange) come to us even as we remain still in place treading like a mad red queen.

The line by the way is from "Postscript" collected in The Spirit Level by Seamus Heaney. The line itself strikes us as both strange and known (because we return to it and return to it "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.")

And so for day 1246
