“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

Toys from 40 Years Ago

Uncanny. My mum had these in the attic since I was 9. I haven't seen them really since I was about 5. Memories seem to surge up, misshapen, unexpected. Abandoned object cathexes. Now mum sent them for my son.
