“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

KPFA Interview

C.S. Soong, Joy Wheeler and Chuck Johnson couldn't have been nicer and more creative and inspiring if they'd tried. What a great afternoon and evening. It's hard to describe how energized I felt after that interview—an interview at which I may have said some trademark silly things, judging from the laughter going on in the booth while I was talking! C.S. was like a jazz musician and he was really ready to improvise with me. Fantastic mind. Joy facilitated the whole thing—what a superstar. Then I had dinner with Joy and Chuck and we talked about Eliane Radigue and Pauline Oliveros. Life could not be sweeter.

The show is Against the Grain (KPFA Pacifica, Berkeley) and I'll obviously post a link when it happens.
