Impermanence


Ian reminded me last night that blogs are very ephemeral. That's actually one of the things I really like about them. I've often collected quite ephemeral texts and some of my favorite antiquarians were into that (Percy, Ritson). Also, death could come at any moment and even my children will die...so the ephemerality of the blog is a friend, I think.

An undergrad once made me a t-shirt to my specifications, printed with the phrase Impermanence Rules. In slightly punky looking lettering.
