Preparing for the 10 day walking pilgrimage from Warsaw to Częstochowa... estimate 300km. i do this every three years and i hope my body is still in shape to make it through

by the way, Phil Dragash' audiobooks are really impressive with one narrator doing all the voices. the movie soundscapes may imprint the actors' faces in your mind, but for me after a while each character grew distinct from any adaptation.

just found out Jon Bois' '17776' aka 'What Football Will Look Like in the Future' got a sequel a few years back, excited to read/watch/ponder it! The original is one of the most unique speculative science fiction stories i've ever read, but to say anything about it aside from the name would spoil the experience.
