". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

I Pelt Premium T & K With Tinsel!

And there's nothing they can do about it!

Now, their place looks like mine.


In the supermarket this afternoon, to the great amusement of the cashier much tinsel came out of my coat pocket with my wallet.


K. said...

Ouch! That hurt!

T. said...

I WANT some tinsel. The old-fashioned kind, that sticks together. Please send. Ha!

Foxessa said...

K -- No it did not. (brasos!)

T -- I also want that tinsel, which so long ago went the way of realisticly detailed toy animals.

If I found some I'd surely send you some.

Love, C.
