The way of immolation by Peter Stephens

Peter Stephens says in a blog post introducing the video:

I had a nice day Monday hiking around the Appalachian Trail’s Roller Coaster off of Bears Den. I used my phone there to shoot this forty-second videopoem.

He added in a comment:

My first videopoem in over a year. Forty seconds long and a single shoot, so it’s not like it killed me or nothing.

Excerpt from Little Gidding by T. S. Eliot
