Sixth composition, track for marshlands #2…

This piece I think is the main theme of the marsh project, it is trying to work through the loneliness felt when thinking of the overwhelming inevitability of the earth’s destruction by humanity.

When standing in this wetland park, which is a pastiche of its original form, nestled between I95 and 495 expressways next to the only tall hill in Delaware aka the wilmington garbage dump.

I imagine being the sole bald eagle that lives here, and fishes here, amidst the garbage, and pollution and I quickly get overwhelmed by an overwhelming sense of isolation and solitude…

Not the peaceful solitude of being alone with yourself, but that of being alone in a sea of people trying to destroy all in their paths just because of their imagined primacy on earth.
