28 000 Steps: Le Grand Canyon (Flins, Quartz Mountains)


The Grand Masters of the Knights Hospitaller around the time their Strzegom (Streigau) commanderie owned the Quartz Mountains:


Nicolas Lorgne (1277-1284) (the last one to be based in Palestine)
Jean de Villiers (1284-1294)
Odon de Pins (1294-1296)
Guillaume de Villaret (1296-1305)

This white mountain is an earth chakra that spews up the sperm of the gods: quartz, which means glass, which means screen (look at, or rather through, the Chartres stained glass compositions!), which means our whole civilisation… being rooted here…





Stiffening wind and impending sunset tell me it’s time to be moving, though I’d really like to stay here overnight…



In this context, it occurs to me once again, and quite emphatically, that my program is: „Góry Izerskie – a National Park by 2020″.

My catch from the day is so heavy I leave half of it, arranging the following impromptu installation:



The last slide on my backside:



Going back the same way…

I manage to catch the last whiff of sunset at the Leopold…
