“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

Chris Schaberg, IOU

Chris, your invitation to New Orleans has resulted in what I really really wanted Dark Ecology to be, in miniature.

I was already writing it, but quite obliquely and very slowly. That's what, in part, putting two books together at the same time will do for you.

I'll explain it a bit more when you pick me up at the airport.

This talk is a humdinger even if I say it myself.

Thank you Chris. This is not the first time you injected me with Galvanizing Medicine.
