The travel and the search

Michel Foucault on pleasure,

I think that pleasure is a very difficult behaviour. It's not as simple as that to enjoy one's self. And I must say that's my dream. I would like and i hope I die of an overdose of pleasure of any kind. Because i think it's really difficult and I always have the feeling that I do not feel the pleasure, the complete total pleasure and, for me, it's related to death. Because I think that the kind of pleasure I would consider as the real pleasure, would be so deep, so intense, so overwhelming that I couldn't survive it. I would die.

It is precisely this biological longing for pleasure that has led me to sustain a romantic fantasy of the "primitive" and the concrete search for a real primitive paradise, whether that location be a country or a body, a colored continent or colored flesh, perceived as the perfect embodiment of that possibility.
