An English In Kentucky


















Tuesday June 25th 2013  Tim Candler


    Certain tasks have been accomplished. And I say this with the confidence of one who knows well enough that no task is ever actually accomplished, it merely remains there in a condition of  uneasiness.  Like a Hippo walking a tightrope.

     The idea of  "finished" is obviously absurd, unless a mind is either capable of conceptualizing "not being here," or it is "wonderfully arrogant."  But I have noticed that sometimes a satisfaction can be gained  from translating   "Yes! He is accomplished,"  into "Yes! He is finished."
