Others have said we would get tired of traveling. We would want to be "productive" again. This from fellow long-term travelers. But I feel little of that. I want to keep moving in my endless summer. (Our generation thinks it's unique, but it's not. They must have been breathless with youth and passion once, too. And then they married doctors and became lawyers and bore concerned but footloose children, who now feel ready to unleash themselves upon the world, as if it were this great favor, and perhaps it is.)
Air Batang is silent tonight. Nothing but the whirring of the fan and the sea's gentle lapping. We could be the only people left on earth.
