Modern Nature, Derek Jarman

… writing about his school days… about the Kennedy assassination… about not being political, not going on marches… an interesting comment about assassination as a political change tool… they believing that assassinations were a relic from the past…

… assassination was not part of modern life, seemed aberrant, out of date; it struck down 19th century Czars and Emperors — not the bright young president of a new era.1

… too frequently i have the thought that Biden or Harris will be gunned down… the level of violence producing passion presently stoked in the country will explode again… how and where is the question…

… i stop to search the availability of The Garden and find it is available on Amazon Prime… i want to watch it… i think H might not enjoy it, maybe i won’t either, but the filming of it is a thread running throughout Modern Nature so i feel i should…
