“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

So I'm on my fifth and sixth monograph projects and I recognize the emotional flow of things much better now. Once you've carved out the project, you put in detail. This process is like chipping away inside a tunnel. You chip, chip, chip—hey great, I found a jewel; chip, chip, chip, oh look, a spring of water, neat. Chip, chip, freeze, FROZEN, STUCK. Stop! I can't take it!

That's where I am right now.
