Extraordinary Discourse 052

Diversified Portfolio

From Winter at Zarathustra's House to God's Playroom, with many timely stops and starts between.

The daily paper is a good example of a happening because everything that’s in it happens at the same moment. The dateline is the only organizing principle in a newspaper.  There is no connection between the items otherwise than the datelines. And if you take away the dateline from any newspaper whatever, you have a quite handsome surrealist poem.
Marshall McLuhan,
Contemplating Me

Utterance alone can heal the ailing spirit.
