There is a certain consciousness, a momentous and fragmented state of being, which the landscape of the Burren rouses. This awareness is concentrated in intensely sensuous junctures. It allows unprecedented, and highly personal engagement with the individual life-world. At times, it seeps so far into our fissures that we fracture. This breakage uncovers naive strata below, and so the process continues.
