“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

For Two Special Chaps

You know, people who just like you and believe in you without conditions, early on in your career. Tim and Sean, of Boulder CO, I'm thinking of you. I realized just this morning, Tim having just written to me, that I owe you in the sense that you believing in me was how I got here, wherever that is...Two very special undergrads, maybe they were bodhisattvas in disguise...not a very good disguise guys :)

Belief in another without conditions-- lovely.

Well, of course, you are welcome, Tim. And I would say that this one is a two-way street. I never imagined where a deeper understanding of Ozymandias might land me today, but - wherever it is - it seems like a good place.

Thanks Tim!
