Subversion

leave a comment »

Most of us live in a world where more and more places and things are signposted, labelled, and officially ‘interpreted’. There is something about all of this that is turning the reality of things into virtual reality. It is the reason why walking, cycling and swimming will always be subversive activities. They allow us to regain a sense of what is old and wild in these islands, by getting off the beaten track and breaking free of the official version of things.
