My Desire toMake Beautiful Things

“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
“Apart from the desire to produce beautiful things, the leading passion of my life has been and is hatred of modern civilization.”

William Morris :: English architect, artist, writer, and socialist with the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations. Morris devoted much of his life to the Kelmscott Press. His 1896 edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece.

Remembering :: May 4th 1970 Kent State Massacre

This day, back then, set in motion my adult life, separate from what my parents and society had imagined and planned for me. And the Kent State Massacre wasn’t alone, wasn’t the only one either; South Carolina and Mississippi and more. The president called us bums and lied (sound familiar).

“Fifty years ago today, 28 soldiers opened fire on anti-Vietnam war demonstrators, letting loose 67 bullets in just 13 seconds. Four students were killed, nine wounded, and a fissure exposed in American society that shaped politics into the Trump era.”

. . . and making national headlines :: ‘A Bomb in the Center of the Climate Movement
Bill McKibben quoting from an email Judith wrote to him and appearing as headline and within the article in Rolling Stone

“I don’t think most people are that mean-spirited (or maybe I just hope not) and of course dozens of friends within the climate movement wrote to express their solidarity and love. But I have no doubt that many of the people who’ve seen the film are, at the least, disheartened. Here’s what one hard-working climate activist wrote me from Montana: “The problem is, this movie is all over the place and is already causing divisions and conflicts in climate action groups that I’m involved in — it’s like they detonated a bomb in the center of the climate action movement.” Which I’m sure is true (and I’m sure it’s why the film has been so well-received at Breitbart and every other climate-denier operation on the planet).”
