I am a Man in the Holocene.

Geologic epoch. Mankind flourishes in the Holocene.

My head feels strange.

I am a Man in the Holocene.

History has its way with me. It spits me out and brings me forth.

These notes help. Freshly taped to wall.

W.G. Sebald
“It is thanks to my evening reading alone that I am still more or less sane.”
W.G. Sebald, Vertigo

William Styron
“The fairest state of them all, this tranquil and beloved domain—what has it now become? A nursery for Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas. A monstrous breeding farm to supply the sinew to gratify the maw of Eli Whitney’s infernal machine, cursed be that blackguard’s name! In such a way is our human decency brought down, when we pander all that is in us noble and just to the false god which goes by the vile name of Capital! Oh, Virginia, woe betide thee! Woe, thrice woe, and ever damned in memory be the day when poor black men in chains first trod upon thy sacred strand!”
William Styron, The Confessions of Nat Turner

Rainer Maria Rilke
“To love is good, too: love being difficult. For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Halldór Laxness
“For man is essentially alone, and one should pity him and love him and grieve with him.”
Halldór Laxness

Charlotte Brontë
“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
