Tao and words
The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.
Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.

Travel and wisdom
It is experience that is the ultimate teacher. That is why wise people travel constantly and test themselves against the flux of circumstance.

While I was doing some Spring Webcleaning a year ago, I coincidentally received a phone call from Nick Bantock about my long-moribund fan pages on his Griffin & Sabine trilogy. As I subsequently cleaned up the link rot in Where in the World are Griffin & Sabine?, I was briefly re-immersed in the tactile pleasures of the letters-in-envelopes motif that made the trilogy such a novelty.
Web nostalgia is sweeping over me.
As I described in the previous post, Zen and the Art of Instellar Immanence, I recently chanced upon a link to one of my old Web essays from 1995 that had been mirrored on another site. Turns out it still is! I had moved it from my academic host to a personal domain last year, but had never put it back in circulation, so to speak. Having discovered that it was indeed very much alive, I spent an evening cleaning up the link rot and tweaking the layout. If I wanted it to be presentable, I would have to make it so myself.
