Ορφεύς - Ευρυδίκη

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens--second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."

R.P., s.XX. (cit. T.D., s.XXI)

Where do you want to be when the Big One hits?
Asleep in Jeremy Blake's arms.
