Mind your humour

Off to a workshop in Zurich today and tomorrow. The topic is mimesis and how we are affected by that which we imitate. This is what Plato thought problematic in poets and actors – if you imitate something ridiculous, you make a mockery of who you truly are and set a bad example for others. But looking at his “ideal” city-state, I’d rather not live in a world that watches your every step and goes “Oy!” each time you laugh out too loudly.

Oh, and by the way: 12,027 words. I hope I can keep this up.
