'Sometime I’d like to write a book

but today I’ll begin by telling a story—I may not have time

to tell the whole story

but at least I can make a beginning

There are many ways to begin, all involve digging.



  • Epigraph:

    In the theatre of the world art is a conveyor of dreams, a mobiliser of imagination, and a conduit for emotion. When we find beauty sometimes we need look no further. — Jean-Hubert Martin, curator of Theatre of the World MONA, 23 June 2012–8 April 2013

    Association, so far as the word stands for an effect, is between THINGS THOUGHT OF—it is THINGS, not ideas, which are associated in the mind. We ought to talk of the association of objects, not the association of ideas. — William James, ‘Association’ in The Principles of Psychology edited by eBooks@Adelaide, University of Adelaide, 2014
