Thank you DEM

Thank you for suggesting that I read my colleague Jean-Joseph Goux. And I'm glad you liked the essay! I'm thinking about the precise issue he talks about a lot, these days.

Thanks for the thanks. Your blog is a blast.
Jeffers' "Vulture" below:

I had walked since dawn and lay down to rest on a bare hillside
Above the ocean. I saw through half-shut eyelids a vulture wheeling
high up in heaven,
And presently it passed again, but lower and nearer, its orbit
I understood then
That I was under inspection. I lay death-still and heard the flight-
Whistle above me and make their circle and come nearer.
I could see the naked red head between the great wings
Bear downward staring. I said, "My dear bird, we are wasting time
These old bones will still work; they are not for you." But how
he looked, gliding down
On those great sails; how beautiful he looked, veering away in the
over the precipice. I tell you solemnly
That I was sorry to have disappointed him. To be eaten by that beak
become part of him, to share those wings and those eyes--
What a sublime end of one's body, what and enskyment; what a life
after death.
