THE CHAPTER FOUR BLOG

Questions? You can ask me anything ... just not anonymously.  

"I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an anti-theist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful." - Christopher Hitchens in Letters to a Young Contrarian.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." - Sinclair Lewis

“Religion has ever been anti-human, anti-women, anti-life, anti-peace, anti-reason, and anti-science. The god idea has been detrimental not only to humankind, but to the earth. It is time now for reason, education, and science to take over.” - Madalyn Murray O'Hair

Creationism: The belief that Kirk Cameron knows more than Stephen Hawking.

Eòin - Painter and government employee. Writer, photographer, pitbull wrangler, voracious devourer of books and films and knowledge, muggle, gardener, hesitant self-taught cook, and brave little traveler. People say I should have been an archivist of some sort. I think I should have been a paleontologist - I’d be out digging right now. I have always had rescue dogs and you can see two of them throughout these pages.

Recently divorced after fifteen years. Still figuring out the life that follows. Over three decades, I lived in Seattle, San Francisco, and then Manhattan - now I make my home in rural New England. I like the quiet. I like the forest. I like snow in the winter. I like growing my own broccoli rabe. I like buying fresh, local goat's milk cheese.

This is chapter four.

From Wikipedia:
Kazuo Ōno (1906-2010) was a Japanese dancer who became a guru and inspirational figure in the dance form known as Butoh. It was written of him that his very presence was an “artistic fact.”
He is the author of several books on Butoh, including The Palace Soars through the Sky, Dessin, Words of Workshop, and Food for the Soul. The latter two were published in English as Kazuo Ōno’s World: From Without & Within (2004). In October 2006, soon after Ōno's 100th birthday, Kyoto-based publisher Seigensha released a photography book in homage to Ōno featuring the works of Eikoh Hosoe entitled The Butterfly Dream.
Ōno once said of his work: “The best thing someone can say to me is that while watching my performance they began to cry. It is not important to understand what I am doing; perhaps it is better if they don’t understand, but just respond to the dance.”
