“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

Amazing Lithuania

Now that was the definition of a wonderful visit. In fact, it's very hard to describe just how wonderful it was. I'll try to do so in the posts that follow.

But here's one thing. My lovely hosts took me to a gigantic geology museum which was in itself a wonderful relic, and I was given a disc of the flesh of the Earth from their 30 000 core samples. It's hard to know how one could have received more. But I did.
