This could be any of us, in time

I took this video through an office window one summer. The gentleman waiting for the tour bus is occupying his time in a way that is mysterious, to me.

Jeff Bursey is a literary critic and author of the picaresque novel Mirrors on which dust has fallen and the political satire Verbatim: A Novel, both of which take place in the same fictional Canadian province. His newest book, Centring the Margins: Essays and Reviews, is a collection of literary criticism that appeared in American Book Review, Books in Canada, The Review of Contemporary Fiction, The Quarterly Conversation, and The Winnipeg Review, among other places. He’s a Contributing Editor at The Winnipeg Review, an Associate Editor at Lee Thompson’s Galleon, and a Special Correspondent for Numéro Cinq. He makes his home on Prince Edward Island in Canada’s Far East.

      1. Ha! Nice to know those artists inspired you to record your own long walks, Adam.

        I enjoy walks, long or otherwise, too. I might need to consult with the man above, though, about breaking out of my circumambulations.

    1. I totally agree. He looks like he’s been instructed to get his walking in when he can because of all that sitting on the bus. Notice how careful (and aware) he is about the curb when he’s walking backwards. Actually, walking backwards can be good for your body’s energy systems too, I have heard.
