If you who own the things people must have could understand this, you might preserve yourself. If you could separate causes from results, if you could know that Paine, Marx, Jefferson, Lenin, were results, not cuases, you might survive. But that you cannot know. For the quality of ofowning freezes you forever into "I", and cuts you off forever from the "we."

The Western States are nervous under the beginning change. Need is stimulus to concept, concept to action. A half0million people moving over the country; a million more restive, ready to move; ten million more feeling the first nervousness.

And tractors turning the multiple furrows in the vacant land.
They just seem like relevant words today, as we experience Life become art yet again. And, yet again, put art ahead of life.

    Thanks Glenda!

    Quixotically Yours
