". . . 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

*Lost Girl* Me, Wrong O SO WRONG

Evidently I was working from out of date info. Lost Girl's third season doesn't start until January 14th. Sad now.

But then -- looking at the trailers -- maybe season three will be for me what Season three of The Vamp Diaries was: ho hum, and I quit about 3/4 of the way in.

It's not easy to keep up that level of imagination, freshness and creativity.
