The Duck of Minerva

RIP, Home

I don’t have a lot to say intellectually about the BP oil spill… others can do that perhaps more coherently. But between Hurricane Ivan and the oil washing up, the town I grew up in …well, is a very different place. There’s a sense of decenteredness that comes with that, and I got to thinking …maybe that’s just a small little piece of what a lot of people in conflict zones and disaster areas feel every day. Maybe. So even in the decenteredness … I’m pretty lucky.
