    A Change in Thought

    In Nietzsche’s book, The Gay Science, he declares that god is dead at the beginning of section 3 in aphorism 108. The meaning of this statement, in the context of providing a solid possible interpretation of Nietzsche’s argument, is that god, not as a being, but as an idea is dead.

    In a record shop in Truro last summer I heard someone ask for a recording of the Pirates of Penzance. `Would they be a local group?' drawled the girl behind the counter. G & S had obviously lost their hold on late twentieth century Cornwall, but in late nineteenth century America the Mikado was a wow. Rival Mikado companies sprouted like alfalfa seed and sued each other with litigious fury over who had the proper performing rights. On one evening in 1886, a year after the first performance in

    My branches are the kind that hold a child and a book and a cold glass of lemonade on a summer afternoon. My branches are the kind that pile up snow as parka swathed children build a mighty castle of cold. My branches are the kind that cradle a small frightened child and let him know that everything will be okay. I have had centuries to watch and think for I cannot move or communicate as the human children do. I have watched generations of people grow old and die, I have said to myself many times

Bicen met with and drew these individuals over the course of two years, during which
