Wednesday Words of Wisdom

We don’t know who discovered water, but we know it wasn’t the fish.

Marshall McLuhan

A very intelligent fish wouldn’t know it lived in water until it was gasping in the air, just as we wouldn’t know the state of our natural cultural setting until we’re thrown out of it. When the cultural norms we accept in the U.S. are challenged, we can recognize what makes us fish and not birds, so to speak.

First Post Test

You haven’t written anything yet, but that’s easy for you to do later! Here’s your chance to get your site looking just the way you want it to before the words start flowing. Some inspiration from someone who knew a thing or two about writing:

And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.

William Shakespeare (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)
