As Donald Rumsfeld once put it,
there are known unknowns: things we know that we don't know.
For example, I know that this painting is not art. Maybe it's science.

But I don't know that this photograph is not art, and i don't know that it's not
science,
in the Marxist sense of the word, as in, meta-politics.

history never repeats itself

except with close friendships at stake"

it’s not so easy to bring-up childhood images of grownups period
we’re they there
mostly harsh
photos mostly wish-filling bs
but some of the late 1800s 1900s family stuff
my people are stiff
and somethings other


Bill Dane

¡Thank You Nick!
