“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

Talks this Week

...a very interesting panel with Alexander Regier and Tilottama Rajan on the grotesque. Then Sunday a panel on Victorian ecology issues.

I'm pleased with both talks. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to write them at first. I have a lot of large projects on the go. And I am really into what Buddhists call practice at present. Meditation.
