This is the last of our bottles. If it ever makes its way out to the new world, know that it was unending love that fueled the moon's magnetic pull to pursue you through the death that threatened to conquer it, and it is beautiful. It cannot fail.

The #message was well-contextualized, albeit without explicit intention. He cited @nenglander ‘s #oped piece in the #newyorktimes on activist David Buckel’s self-immolation alongside a link to an article on the corrupt practices of our anti-environment #epa chief. This #correspondence situated itself in time on #earthday and in the time-based #composition of my #drawing right beneath my work on his initial email on Buckel’s suicide.
I was thinking about what to #draw when I was struck by his choice of #metaphor to describe our inattentiveness to the #anthropocene #extinction that we are creating and confronting. He compared our #culture to something larger than the #titanic that was heading into an #iceberg (albeit melting).
My #associations went to #freud ‘s iceberg model of the #unconscious . From there they ricocheted to #darwin and the role of #adaptation in #evolution . It is our adaptability that both enables us to overcome adversity while inuring us to corruption and the tragic death of a troubled man who tried to make a statement of his suffering.
Part of what is buried deep in the unconscious are the limits of adaptation. While human ingenuity allows for adaptation, the hubris of our sense of unlimited vision blinds us to the consequences of our actions. As with the iceberg, we can only visualize its tip. Rather than seeing the need, say, for icebergs in our ecosystem, we treat them as icy obstacles to be overcome, until we see that our continued presence on earth may depend upon them. To know what is beneath the surface of things is often essential. Without that #wisdom , we are the #dodo #birds .
Although again out of #context , #marcusaurelius ‘ words on adaptation echo across the millennia.

Happy stationery week and letter writing month too! This week we really want to inspire you to pick up a pen and get writing some snail mail. Tell someone you’re thinking of them, or perhaps it’s an overdue thank you, or even just to say hi to a friend. There are so many reasons to make a meaningful connection with someone. And while you’ve got pen and paper to hand, write to us and we’ll mail you a letter back including a little gift to say thank you (all info on our blog) ✨ #stationerylove #letterwriting #snailmail #happymail #correspondence #quilllondon
