‘Facts’, et al

I found this quote in our 2017 short anthology, S P A C E | ‘Circumference.’ 


The student then asked, “What should I do next?”‘

‘Oh, look at the fish,’ professor and zoologist Jean-Louis Agassiz said, and left the room.’

Later the prof would say, ‘That is right. A pencil is one of the best of eyes… Facts are stupid things.’


This week in Atelier S P A C E we’re in ‘social distancing’ week three in Ho Chi Minh City. So I have even more time than I did when I was merely doing the existing-today stuff of, um, waiting. Waiting for the pandemic to end. Cause now I can’t really hang out and peoplewatch, even. So I’m home. Naturally.  Okay, no problem. I’ll search the archives, then.

Right. Back I go, to Dropbox.

Fact.
