The Lay of the Land
Winter 2023, #46
The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, all in one. - John Ruskin
Welcome to newsletter 46. Over this past year the CLUI has continued to examine the energy spectrum, from the eternal internal combustion of the earth’s molten core, escaping through geothermal cracks, to the shifting surficial flows and ponds of pumped hydropower. Everything is motivated by energy, the ultimate shared medium. It is the U and the US. What got us all here, and how we will get out. The gas for the bus. We are glad you are with us on this trip, however long and strange it may be.
