“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

I Have No Clue

I'm slap in the middle of Lisbon. There are sloping streets everywhere. This evening I shall have dinner with my host and then go to an opening, I believe.

This little apartment has a balcony, which is excellent. And I am the keeper of its sole key so heaven help me if I lose it.

Arriving in a strange new place is always uncanny. I almost like it...
