This timely comment just came in,
passed along by a mail art pal in Canada:
"I know the world is bruised and bleeding,
and though it is important
not to ignore its pain, it is also critical
to refuse to succumb to its malevolence.
Like failure, chaos contains information
that can lead to knowledge---even wisdom.
"This is precisely the time
when artists go to work.
There is no time for despair,
no place for self-pity,
no need for silence,
no room for fear.
We speak, we write, we do language.
That is how civilizations heal."
- Toni Morrison -
