Apologies for not writing but I've been wrapped up in life. No excuses, it goes on... Sometimes priorities get shifted.
I've also been wrapped up in Chuck P.'s newest: RANT
Perhaps because I call LA home (and it's the holiday season), I've become obsessed with this quote from the book:
"...Beginning with Santa Claus as a cognitive exercise, a child is encouraged to share the same idea of reality as his peers. Even if that reality is patently invented and ludicrous, belief is encouraged with gifts that support and promote the common cultural lies.
The greatest consensus in modern society is our traffic system. The way a flood of strangers can interact, sharing a path, almost all of them traveling without incident. It only takes one dissenting driver to create anarchy." (p. 130)
Running almost back to back with Lullaby, this is a decidedly different read. Curious to hear what others have to say about it.
