with quotes for January 2021:
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What
isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.
— Herman Hesse, Demian, 1919.
What we need to oppose is not this man or that woman. Nature will finish them
off soon enough, of its own accord. The proper object of our hate is relationships,
ways of interacting that ravage all concerned, both those who starve from too
little power and those who founder on too much.
— Lecture at Ohio Wesleyan University,
Garden moment for January 2021:
In a normal January, strands of LEDs simulate sprays of water at the Zimmerman Fountain alongside the falls, part of the Niagara Parks Festival of Lights. This year the lights were all turned off just after Christmas, lest Covid-19 be spread by people congregating around the displays.
