"Once place is as good as another, one use is as good as another, one life is as good as another – if the price is right. Thus political sentimentality metamorphoses into commercial indifference or aggression. This is the industrial doctrine of the interchangeability of parts, and we apply it to places, to creatures, and to our fellow humans is if it were the law of the world, using all the while a sort of middling language, imitated from the sciences, that cannot speak of heaven or earth, but only of concepts. This is the rhetoric of nowhere, which forbids a passionate interest in, let alone a love of, anything in particular"
- Wendell Berry, Life is a Miracle

sounds of today here - a new cd is in the makings & there is so much music to learn.

Too much art history and rain today.
