i am trying to speak on the outside of by body. I am digital. I decorate my hip and cheast with lace and then wonder where I left my typewriter, the ink under my fingernails instead of this mud, so many years ago. sometimes I do not have the most direct words. And then I glance at the clock and drop this moment. Move to the next. Read eight pages into a new book and finally find spreadable tears...

The Experimentalist and the rational philosopher
(I am not persuaded that these two are, in the end, different) Diderot—— spoke on behalf of the collecting experimentalist. Unlike the proud architects of luminous systems, the patient gatherer groped in the dark.

Story from SF GATE/SF Chronical “Two protesters came up with clever costumes to get their point across Wednesday night.
