Stay the Same


10 months at 67,000 mph

Having passed the 300th day it is now today exactly ten months since I started filming. It occurred to me this morning as I stood on my platform filming that even if I were to stand in exactly the same place for a whole year I would still be moving.

So I googled it and found out that I have been travelling on average at approx. 67,000 miles per hour as the earth loops its way around the sun, the sun loops its way around the centre of the galaxy and the universe expands outwards. By the end of my year I will have travelled approximately 583 million miles. (Sometimes the direction the earth is travelling around the sun is counteracted by the direction the sun is travelling around the universe). I know this isn’t really what we mean by travelling, but it is kind of fun to think about and I find it weirdly reassuring somehow that you never stay still, even if you really really want to. More soon.
