florence trip day one~1126 EST

Leaving out of Raleigh-Durham yesterday afternoon I saw a mother beating her child in the Continental terminal..."You're ODD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I don't know what to do with you," I'm not sure I understand why some catchphrase pseudo-diagnosis might rationalize her boxing her son's little ears. I was embarrassed and appalled for everyone who saw this.

Tonight we leave out of JFK for Florence and a two week stay in the Villa Bobolino via Frankfurt. This includes a 8 hour layover in Germany for John, Eugenie and myself while my parents fly on ahead.

I'm presently in NYC where it's cold and drizzly. After a buzzy commuter flight to Dulles yesterday, I was imprisoned in a terminal tucked in the forolorn recesses of that airport for 5 hours before I could catch a flight last night to JFK. Then, after having 3 hours sleep over the last forty hours, I sunk, catatonic, for 8 hours sleep on Eugenie's couch.

This morning I picked up some croissants and madeleines at Balthazar. Their chocolate madeleine's are unctuous and...chocolatey (big surprise).

If you want to send a text message to my phone in Italy, try this. It may or may not work, but John, being well-traveled, says that SMS should work in Europe at no extra charge.

Below are a few pictures of Watson & Crick, my sister's little monsters:

When he to whom one speaks does not understand, and he who speaks himself does not understand, that is metaphysics.

The word 'revolution' is a word for which you kill, for which you die, for which you send the labouring masses to their death, but which does not possess any content.

We are mad, not only individually, but nationally. We check manslaughter and isolated murders; but what of war and the much vaunted crime of slaughtering whole peoples?

Socrates was the first to call philosophy down from the heavens and to place it in cities, and even to introduce it into homes and compel it to enquire about life and standards and good and ill.

The fundamental sense of freedom is freedom from chains, from imprisonment, from enslavement by others. The rest is extension of this sense, or else metaphor.
