Ways of Ecology

An excerpt from my newest, favorite read,  The Spell of the Sensuous, a philosophy book written by David Abram… it arrived in the mail yesterday evening…

…in so far as my hand knows hardness and softness, and my gaze knows the moon’s light, it is as a certain way of linking up with the phenomenon and communicating with it. Hardness and softness, roughness and smoothness, moonlight and sunlight, present themselves in our recollection not pre-eminently as sensory contests but as certain kinds of symbioses, certain ways the outside has of invading us and certain ways we have of meeting the invasion…

This is not the last time you will be hearing from David Abram.. I have a feeling… xoxo
