Often I feel as though the twentieth century never happened for me, never mind the twenty-first. I'm writing a paper on Aristotle by hand while listening to Schubert's Ave Maria in an old, unheated house. Except for the fact that I'm writing this entry and listening to Ave Maria on a computer, the original occupants of this house could have done the same thing. Afterwards, they would drink to the health of Queen Victoria and pull up the Globe and Mail for the latest news from Cape Town.

Things really haven't changed all that much, not at all.
