Blood Trumps Stone – Art in the Time of COVID-19

  So here we are. And art matters even less, doesn’t it? If only all the artists had gone to med school instead, we’d have enough doctors to go around. We’d have enough toilet paper to go around. We’d have enough water, enough cleansers, enough food, enough, enough, ENOUGH. We have enough, though, don’t we?… Continue reading Blood Trumps Stone – Art in the Time of COVID-19

Lingual Neutrality

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but… …but. Why is it that in an age where “sticks and stones” in the Binary Landscape of the Ether hurt as much as the names being hurled? Is it because words and names do indeed matter? The problem — and you can give me push-back if you… Continue reading Lingual Neutrality
