To remind a man of the good turns you have done him is very much like a reproach.


Occasionally - usually on grey and wet days - Ezra announces that advanced industrial society has fundamentally prevented us from reaching a non-repressive society that is rooted in fundamentally different experiences of being, fundamentally different relations between humans and nature, and fundamentally different existential relations internally.

While I concede that he has a point, I haven't the heart to tell him Marcuse beat him to it by 60 years...

When it is raining there is fundamentally nothing to do, no matter how much you have in front of you.
I grew up with it. You grew up with it. Now Henry and Ezra are growing up with it.
