Maintenance

Thursday 11 April 2013 - Filed under Squibs

You’re never late for maintenance. It’s not just mandatory. It’s unthinkable. People literally don’t think about maintenance, they just do it. Except for immigrants.

Immigrants don’t realize that the only way to make a home out here is by unceasing human effort. Nothing is provided by a benevolent biosphere that may give storms, predators and earthquakes, but provides water, prey and soil. Nature is so encompassing on Earth as to be automatic to the individual. Out here, that automation must reside in the human agency that can aspire to that compass. It must reside in culture.
