9 Little Pieces

These pieces were first written as far as Piece 5, which frames the issue of archaic consciousness from a postmodern perspective. The next day I set out to visit Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. These are direct descendents of our first ancestors: human beings who never left ‘home’. In returning to this place of origin, my aim was to help bring modern and archaic consciousness into right relationship. I realised on arriving in Africa that I had needed to write these first pieces in order to bring my sensibilities as a post/modern person into articulate awareness by way of preparing for what was to follow. I was then required to forget about them and duly did. The remaining pieces were written after my return.
