not lost.


i would have never

guessed that i would

love a piece of writing

about birds

as much as this

at first

i only clicked

because i thought

it had something to do

with the programming language


but nope

something far better

was in store

charles foster

employs some of the most

enrapturing writing

i have come across in ages

the long read

expands on a view

of human life

seen through the lens

of swift life

a very remarkable bird’s eye view

and from this lofty perspective

foster shifts the meanings

we endow physical experiences

like speed

and endurance

and illustrates how

the swift-life

delightfully complicates

our relationship

with time

our understanding

of a lifetime

and the paths we take

to find ourselves

in moments of wonder


and love
