“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

Douglas Kahn on Slowness

My friend Doug got hit by a car and now he's written about it in The Guardian. I love it, and especially this part: 

There are cities within the city with rhythms within rhythms that overlap and, at times, collide. What the image does not show is that there are other people there with you. The city blurs around many people. They occupy the same space but live in a different passage of time than the Sydney most people know.
