We've come a long way baby
What has been said, has been said and said well enough. And really, there is no point in picking over the old bones. However, like the coalminer's daughter, the new departures into this strange whateverworld of our current passions still begin from where it all began all those years ago. We remain true to the beginning (I should say beginnings because we did not start together, and nor did we as individuals originate from one point in one tradition... our interests have always been multiple) and however we dress it up, the new clothes still hang upon the old bones. We have not started again, nor cut ourselves off from went before, nor refuted those early formulations. It is just that it became necessary to talk about something else. There is always something else to talk about.
