Man-in-the-Holocene

Hi friend...

You’ll be ok. I know it doesn’t feel like it right now. I know you’re curled up on your couch or bed, watching or doing anything that will distract you from your sadness. I know that right now, you feel like you’ll never be ok again. Like, you’ll never love someone the way you loved the person you just broke up with. You’ll never be as happy as you were last summer. You’ll never have that one person you had back again.

But, you’ll be ok. I believe in you. You should believe in you too. Sometimes life feels like butterflies and sometimes it feels like moths. You have to keep going to see the beauty in every day. And if you made it through today, I am proud of you. Life is hard sometimes. But message me on here if you’re sad. I knew you’re special. I knew you’d be ok.

And you will.

So put on your favorite movie or favorite song or read your favorite book. I know you’ll be ok. You’re special. You mean something. You will impact someone immensely, if you haven’t already. Which you have.

Movies that make me happy: The Family Stone, The Breakfast Club, The Proposal, All About Eve, The Notebook, Uncle Buck, The Switch, Meet Me In St. Louis.

“Man in the Holocene” by Max Frisch

A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man’s lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch’s protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch’s most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser’s desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window. The story of a man on the brink of mental and physical extinction.

What is there to think about?

–EB : AE = AE : AB

–the Bible and the fresco of the Virgin Mary do not prove that God will continue to exist once human beings, who cannot accept the idea of a creation without a creator, have ceased to exist; the Bible was written by human beings.

–the Alps are the result of folding.

–ants live in colonies.

–the arch was invented by the Romans.

–if the Arctic ice were to melt, New York would be under water, as would Europe, except for the Alps.

–many chestnut trees are cankered.

–only human beings can recognize catastrophes, provided they survive them; Nature recognizes no catastrophes.

–man emerged in the Holocene.
