6 comments on “What we build

  1. I recently found myself walking past a yearbook wall created by a high school that had rejected me for a job. It struck me just how “together” they had it, how proud they must be to be running such a large and seamless operation. And it occurred to me, “that will all fall down”. All the skyscrapers we’ve erected to reach heaven, all the society we’ve got humming like a fine motor…numbered days. All of them.

  2. I love how the earth is putting on weight. Every archaeological dig is … digging. All the past is buried beneath layers of earth-fat. Is this a planet of milk and honey?
