    P 102 describing people in an airport it appeared as if they could have been picked up and put down anywhere on the planet or any other planet for that matter without severing any ties It's not exactly what the author means but being tied to a place in a transient world is an interesting experience Its especially an interesting experience when the place you've committed to is a college town the epitome of transience There are sacrifices when committing to a place things like choosing less than ideal work less than ideal housing but the rewards are endless when it's a place that speaks to you There are some parallels to marriage except that in marriage structural forces encourage your relationship Choosing marriage to a place in a college town receives no societal support In fact it is actively discouraged

    A friend loaned me this book because of my interest in spiritual journeys particularly those involving the Inca It was a riveting tour of the shamanistic initiation process overlapping on many of the practices I'd uncovered in my research without benefit of actually experiencing it I took issue with the earlier depiction of the Apu but it was explained later
