No forward momentum

Other than ourselves


Storm passing through / New Jersey / March 2008

“ . . . because we can never be other than ourselves, imprisoned by our time and place and circumstances. However much we want to learn, to know, we can only ever see things with our own eyes and hear with our own ears, and how we interpret what we see and hear depends, ultimately, on who we are and what we already think we know, or want to know.”

~ Daniel Mendelsohn in The Lost, A Search for Six of Six Million
