Bricks and Mortar

One of those days that feels like I’ve been putting one thing after another, until a structure appears in front of me. It’s not a palace, but it’s better than a shed. Not uninspired writing, but nothing glamorous either.

One sentence stood out though:

Geoff Ryman’s criticism of modern society’s preoccupation with a “Neo Classicism” made manifest by our “reading too many books, looking at too many movies, and changing TV channels” is symptomatic of a move away from Modernism’s formality and reflection on the epistemological nature of our lives.

Yeah, I’m not sure what comes after that either.
