"farewell to faraway friends"

dear theresa and jeremy i do very well understand your decision to drop out of this world. as mentioned by your friend glenn o'brian you were brilliant people. i just started to read you nice notes not too long ago and i find that you try to comprehend what is there to do on this planet. there is too much stuff going on and a lot of it is more of a big contradiction somehow. just read _stop the planet chicken_
in fact today we can not move or do anything without thinking that we are betraying our deepest convictions. it is very difficult to live at this point and time without be part of a big "killing machine" or be honest 100% with ourselves and to others. like a nice artist called carl wrote _right now we're in the total animal soup of time_. i just like to remember that "bas jan ader" also did his move to drift away from the picture when he created his great works like "farewell to faraway friends" in 1971. he disappeared in 1975, in a boat somewhere off the coast of cape cod. he was attempting to cross the atlantic ocean in a 13 foot sailboat. therese and jeremy did make their decision to just go, to leave . i do have great admiration for all three of them.
