“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

Symposium Today

...and a Ph.D. comps exam, and my Ph.D. student Toby is here, and there is a creative writing job talk. Busy!

I'm going to walk to the Rothko Chapel, Cy Twombly and Menil with Toby and Simon after breakfast.
