a stretched skin of contradictions...
World War 2, Vietnam, Thatcherism, The Dot.com bust and now the financial catastrophe - all disasters where rationalism made no space for man's, far from perfect, mind.
Peace of mind is more often than not based on finding a balance between the competing forces in one's head - the desire to consume and to be frugal, to run and to take responsibility, to create and to destroy, to be peaceful and be loud, to be solitary and to be part of a community.
We are a stretched skin of contradictions across a drum of opposites.
