“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

Antarctic Air

You can feel the cold spreading from the Antarctic here in Dunedin New Zealand. Shackleton and Scott set out from here. That gives me chills. Listen to the horns in this extract from Vaughan Williams's Sinfonia Antarctica (his 7th). Really heavy, around 3:45.
