Background

A description of the experience

Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass

I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals
they are so placid and self contained
they bring me tokens of myself.... they evince them plainly in their possession
I do not know where they got those tokens
I must have passed that way untold times ago and negligently dropped them
Myself moving forward then and now and forever

The source of the experience
