This is where I write for the web.

The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.

From Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities.

May we fight the things that reduce us for the company and truth that make life big. Happy new year, everyone. Here’s to 2012.
