Out of Sight

Abstract
A young man moves in with his grandfather in order to recover from a sickness – upon which he finds he does not have any desire to return to the life he left behind. He finds himself instead surrounded by memories of his past, as if they were still present. The San Francisco Bay Area, – with its dense cities and remote mountains, its coasts and its caves, its redwoods and its own repressed past – has preserved that time for him to consider. He remembers a friend who he has fallen out of contact with – and decides to write down the history of their lost friendship, finally exposing it to words, to prove to himself that it – if nothing else – still has substance. During this journey, taken on long walks in the Santa Cruz Mountains, in night and day, and in his own notebook, the lines that discriminate and separate things from other things, weed from plant, light from dark, begin to blur, as he feels himself pulled more and more to those remote places which exist both inside – and far away.
