Excerpt from dissertation.

The shiver. Between this place here and known and that place there, unknown, is a journey. Is this a figurative journey, of possibility and imagination, or a physical one, with my body pushing against other bodies? I feel my body as tight—wound up—feeling minute sensations. I want to be low and crawl through the leaves, pull branches aside to get there faster.
