🔗 Slow Work and Plain Chant – An Apology for the Failed Life | The Junket - “Whatever it is you achieve, you do so almost involuntarily, by stalagtital accretion; there is no sense of anything getting done.” And: “Ours is not an ornamental age. It is not an age fitted out for Slow Work. Rather this is an age for thrift and economy in which the need to have done or to be seen to have done has triumphed over the need merely to be doing. If you are doing, then you are not done. We are what we accomplish and for the most part we accomplish nothing. Ornament, in this context, is a disease, a pathology of form, an encrustation of gothic irrelevance.”
