“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

California, Now

This was taken by Rachel, a musicologist who is the wife of my Ph.D. student Ted Geier, who just graduated with a fine Ph.D. on meat and butchers in the Victorian period.

It's the sun in the later morning in Davis, California, where I used to live. Right now the county (Yolo County) is on fire, along with a whole lot of the rest of California.
