"...I kept walking for a while and wondered what would happen...if we decided not to try to dominate the world...imagine how it would feel if we could be on a path of increasing compassion, diminishing brutality, diminishing greed--I think it might actually feel wonderful to be alive."--Wallace Shawn, "Fragments From a Diary"

Slow posting

Updates will probably be infrequent for the next couple of weeks. I just moved last weekend, so I'm still unpacking. I'm also getting over losing my cat, Wesley. He escaped from the new apartment the night before my girlfriend and I were moving in, after we left him to get acquainted. But I've heard stories of cats returning after four or five days away from home, so hopefully he'll find his way back.
