Lezioni americane: Sei proposte per il prossimo millennio

What was in the middle? Was there a vanity plate? I'll bet there was significant tension brought to bear on the bumper from either end. Was the bumper capable of being warped in some interesting way, or was it one of those scary plastic ones that bounces back to its original shape after any encounter under 5 mph?


Were I to choose an auspicious image for the new millennium, I would choose this one: The sudden agile leap of the poet-philosopher who raises himself above the weight of the world, showing that with all his gravity he has the secret of lightness, and that what many consider to be the vitality of the times--noisy, aggressive, revving and roaring--belongs to the realm of death, like a cemetery for rusty, old cars.

Phil Cubeta

Wisdom - light or heavy? laughing or serious? The King is serious, the Fool, light. The King has the best of everything, the Fool nothing at all. Yet, the jester has the heavy burden of saving the King from the King. No wonder at Carnival, the two trade roles, and Fool struts in ermine, as the King waits on tables. Such a shame we have lost that as a living tradition.
