  1. Thanks Ethan, a valuable antidote to the melancholy induced by the medical fascists’ awful “Internet of Bodies” (previous post)…drawing joy and strength form the wonder of nature, with not a device in sight. As always, Camus is profound: the first question to ask: is life worth living? Once answered in the affirmative, we can proceed. Reminds me, I must re-read “The Plague”.
