All the around the mighty Hadron
The physicists chased a quark
Twas all a high energy lark ’til
Pop! went the weasel.

Monkey No Aware #30 — Advice for Would-be Pearl Divers

lacrimae rerum by Andrew Grimes Griffin

Are you a homosexual? Have you had desires to feel the naked bodies of other men, or women, if you are a woman? If not, how then would you recognize these longings in the writings of others? You would be a pearl diver who has never seen a pearl. Occasionally, by accident, you might bring one to the surface, but mainly you would dredge up pebbles and empty shells. If you still wish to fish for pearls you must first listen long and hard to those who have actually seen them, held them in their hearts as in their hands.

Monkey No Aware #29— God and Racism

lacrimae rerum by Andrew Grimes Griffin“Racism is real in the same way God is real. They are both constructs invented to torture, enslave and dehumanize our fellow humans.  They persist because they are useful to those in power, those who wish to maintain—or increase—their power over others, those who need fictitious differences to mask real inequalities, inequities that they benefit from.”

Monkey No Aware #27— Seamus Heaney on Poetry

lacrimae rerum by Andrew Grimes Griffin“I don’t think poetry makes you a better person or anything like that.  Wordsworth had it right. It’s a pleasure. It’s a sophisticated pleasure. It’s a learned pleasure and I think you do have to develop a sense of it.”
Seamus Heaney in the documentary Out of the Marvellous
