So the Song Sings the dumbbird
This week I laid to rest Tycho’s Theater, my computer.
His life was not so long but his service was extensive.
Such is the accounting for this week’s visual limitations.
Be on the lookout next week for the continuing saga of dumbbird with new characters to novel, new sights to see, new thought retold like old.
“A society which discards those who are weak and non-productive risks exaggerating the development of reason, organisation, aggression and the desire to dominate. It becomes a society without a heart, without kindness – a rational and sad society, lacking celebration, divided within itself and given to competition, rivalry and, finally, violence .”
- Jean Vanier
Lo, a shadow of horror is risen
In Eternity! Unknown, unprolific,
Self-clos'd, all-repelling: what demon
Hath form'd this abominable void,
This soul-shudd'ring vacuum? Some said
"It is Urizen." But unknown, abstracted,
Brooding, secret, the dark power hid.
Chapter One from The Book of Urizen
- William Blake
