    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I dunno. I scratch my head and say "Uhm... OK."

    But I also have to teach people how to reason, so that's where the headache gets through my fence of mental health.

    Finished the real cannibals book. Wow. It's apparently quite prevalent in nature.

    And now onto something out of my norm. An audiobook called Fever Dream, a novel by Samanta Schweblin. It's actually translated from the original Spanish (Argentina). An odd story done in a vague setting. A woman in a hospital. A child next to her, who isn't her child. And the story of how she got there. Let's give it a go!

    Back on the zombie train! (omg, what an awesome name for a zombie novel!)

    Listening to War of the Undead Day one (The Apocalypse crusade #1). Some cheese of the undead variety.
