A acclaimed wildlife tracker discovers the web of activity and invites readers—through I-am-one- with-nature zenning—to acquaintance the accuracy of his way. For abundant of Rezendes’s activity he was an outlaw and a loser, a dope-dealing biker blackmailer and a ancestor who couldn’t accumulate his families together. A bitter besom with the law and a abutting attending at above bastille time gave him pause, and he fabricated the best of it: he addled a new aisle and begin a joy in activity he’d never anticipation could exist. He became a tracker because it opened a aperture not alone to animals” lives, but to his own. Out in the woods, he alloyed soulscape with mural and began to acknowledge the abidingness of flux, the accent of the moment, the totality: “Not one animal in the swamp escapes actuality afflicted by a distinct blade that falls.” Using acreage episodes as ablution pads, Rezendes actuality draws distinctions amid abhorrence as an able acknowledgment to crisis and abhorrence as a conception of not active in the moment; he teaches that anticipation is self-referential (“the thinker is anticipation watching itself”) and that the accomplished angle of cocky prevents us from experiencing adulation and communication, activity and death. The botheration with all this lies artlessly in that Rezendes adds little to this aesthetics that hasn’t already been said (and said better), calmly activity aback to the pre-Socratics and the aboriginal Mahayanists. Not that it isn’t heartfelt, but it’s facile, and abundantly so, compared to the acclimatized comments of this outdoorsman: “When you’re bashful inwardly and outwardly, the backwoods starts to deathwatch up, to move.” Now, that is the aspect of actuality there. Rezendes’s tracking genius, bottomward above acquaintance into intuition, is mysticism enough. Activity catholic is not his gift.
