“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

Morning with Jon McKenzie

Well that was a lovely way to finish my trip here, my third trip to Wisconsin in 2012. It's like when I went to Chicago four times in 2011!

Jon showed me around the Capitol building, where the protests against the governor, who to me looks like Sid Vicious poured into a suit with slick hair, involved both Jon and my other friend Rob Nixon.

Then we went to a Frank Lloyd Wright building (built not directly by him, but posthumously) and looked at the lake. It was a very very good thing to hang out with Jon in Madison. Which is an excellent, excellent town.
