“our fear: this is what we are made of: our weakness”
“A flock of birds turning in the sky is doing something that people don’t know how to do: moving together, beautifully, without a leader or choreographer…I study ant colonies, and how they get things done without any central control.”
– Deborah M. Gordon in Lukas Felzmann’s Swarm
“Let us agree to apply the word ‘talk’ to all ways of experiencing sensations, actions, and ideas in signs of any kinds, and also to all ways of interpreting signs, and [let us] apply this word ‘sign’ to everything recognizable whether to our outward senses or to our inward feeling or imagination, provided only it calls up some feeling, effort, or thought…Nothing does speak for itself, strictly nothing, speaking strictly. One cannot bid his neighbor good morning, really, effectually, unless that neighbor supplies the needed commentary on the syntax. If he does not, I might as well shake a rattle.”

Gorgeous. Particularly loved the disappearing text. Into silence. Ingenious.
Thank you Summer. And for taking the time 🙂
