“With language the world comes to be furnished with qualities like good and evil, abstractions like democracy and communism, values like honour, valor and generosity, imaginary beings like demons, spirits and gods, imagined places like heaven and hell. All of these concepts are reified, made into res, real “things”, by social actions contingent upon language.”

Yes. I know. More lapse. And just to cover myself, I may be a little inconsistent with the blogging over the next week or two. First reason: I’m focusing a lot on work. Not the busy-work that sometimes gets in the way, but real honest-to-god making. And boy, does it feel good. Second reason: I’m in between. Moving, flat-hunting, in transition. Things in bags and boxes. While I can pretty much make a base for myself anywhere as long as I have something to write on (notepad/iPod/laptop) and a way of managing incoming interruptions, there’s no doubt that my regular rituals, workflows and practises have been disrupted. And I’m taking that as a good thing. Third reason: the time away from Tumblr while my computer was down (and during this period of transition) has given me some space to really think about what it is that I’m doing with this so-called “personal” blog. Mostly, it’s been serving as a personal scrapbook and a repository of “notes to self” with the odd blog entry for good measure. Without going into too much discussion, there are other things I’d like to do. Watch this space.
