fall while dancing 2/1/14

Rabbit, rabbit.

 

From Lyn Hejinian:

 

“Devastation, or, the wreck. One can’t write the words ‘war,’ ‘atrocity,’ ‘horror,’ etc. and by using them as names communicate the effect of what’s named. This is because of the relation of language (and, in particular, naming) to measurement. Horror, war and atrocity have to be kept in mind as wrecks.” – from The Language of Inquiry

 

Recalls Blanchot. We need to fall well, if we are to think well and say at all…

 

“If to think is to dance, it is to fall while dancing.”
