23 November 2023 Thursday
Probably the best Thanksgiving Day afternoon I've had so far (in my life). A two hour conversation with my newest friend (in LA) ostensibly about architecture and art, but explicitly about people and lives and living history and even about times when "everything changed."
While enjoying the night air, I thought to later write, "I never imagined The Timepiece of Humanity playing the role of a successful Trojan Horse."
Back in the day when the Trojan Horse story first came out, when the story was read in school, the "public intellectuals dedicated to solving the real problems of the world" always explained, "The Trojan Horse is just like Pandora's Box."
