A Fall in Time: Week Seven
27th of October to the 2nd of November, 2010
Before I get to the updates for this, the seventh week I had stayed out in the oak woods of western Scotland back in 2010, I want you to consider the following question:
What were you doing on September the 14th this year?
How long ago does that feel to you? Perhaps, like here today in this corner of France, it feels a long time ago indeed, as rain and winter blanket all.
Now, consider how you would be feeling if you too had spent all that time alone, out in nature? Seems a long time, right? And I still had weeks to go.
If you are finding this tale of true adventure has value to you, please do consider becoming a paid subscriber. I really appreciate you reading this.
You can click on each of these Notes to read the full text and view any attached photographs, some of which might not show below. Likewise, there are two extra gallery posts this week, full of many images from days when I went for longer walks. Each is linked to in the respective Note.
You might also have to open this email in a browser, as it is probably too long for some clients.
A Fall in Time is a limited series from Alexander M Crow. Apart from sharing this adventure—the first time I spent months alone in the woods—I also share dispatches on the intersection of fiction, nature writing, and empowerment through ancestral skills. I would love you to subscribe.
If you have anything you wish to ask, or add, please feel free to comment below, or use Notes to do so. I really appreciate the dialogue!
And if you enjoy this series, please do share it with a friend or family member, that would be wonderful—the more, the merrier. Or restack on Notes!
I have a few ideas of what to do with this project once it is complete, but I am still working on them (would you like to read an expanded version of this in book form? Perhaps with some practical skill descriptions mixed in?). As such, after this series is complete, it is likely to be archived, only available to paying subscribers.
For now, there are still several more weeks of adventure to come.
Many thanks for reading.
Finally, if you are enjoying these posts and wish to support my work, but do not want to pay to subscribe, you can now also leave a tip of any amount.
