Creatures of Distance

Oh today, let me be here, in the green French distance!

“Time is the longest distance between two places.”
—Tennessee Williams
“Every once in a while, people need to be in the presence of things that are really far away.”
—Ian Frazier
“And so man, as existing transcendence abounding in and surpassing toward possibilities, is a creature of distance. Only through the primordial distances he establishes toward all being in his transcendence does a true nearness to things flourish in him.”
—Martin Heidegger, The Essence of Reasons
