The Idea of March

It's mostly incidental that things that are said or written are beheld as "statements," especially in an era that finds people so externalized into appliances and applications. You know, people are (in the grand and general senses) divorced from one another, so wouldn't it stand to reason that impact is divorced from action? Why else, given the horror of what's happened in Japan, would myriad heads of varying state continue to tout the benefits of nuclear anything?

The title of this post parlays an ages-old truism; most people that know me are familiar with my theory about Shakespeare (no love from me) and how that is what he'd intended to say in that '[Orange] Julius Caesar [Salad]' contraption that he authored up via his word processor with such imprecise haste (hence, the typo) and offered up to the fawning masses sometime before he died on his birthday.

I am choosing to keep this entry short, because it looks really lovely out this morning, and who knows? It might actually be that way.


  1. To play devil's advocate: "Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action" -- seems to me to be exactly what you're getting at here

  2. that's by milli vanilli, right?
