Cabin Fever, NOT!

As the summer withers away, days get shorter, sky gets greyer and fall peeks at us with its cool evenings. This was a hike in Vernon, CT in a forest/park that was donated by the Beldings to the state. It is known as the Belding wildlife management area.

I decided to capture video this time for a change and to make a comeback on YouTube!

We passed through an ex-cabin(hence, the name of this entry) with only its chimney left in the park. The cabin belonged to the Beldings & you can see what was left from it in the first video clip.

Thanks to Kevin, the organizer of The Hartford Area Hiking Meetup Group for his guidance.

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
