Paint it Grey

When philosophy paints its grey in grey, a shape of life has grown old, and it cannot be rejuvenated, but only recognized, by the grey in grey of philosophy; the owl of Minerva begins its flight only with the onset of dusk. Hegel

The grey of the concept over the grey of the world reveals, with the end of the coloured figures in which it was given, the restoration to existence of the task of thinking itself, by itself, beyond all consistency of the figure.
Jean-Luc Nancy

Oh man, I can see you're already prepping for our triple-barrel shotgun, loaded with sludgeshot, at HM this fall...

(looking forward to seeing you in London this week, although I fear the city will be grey tones after I stood today high over the mouth of the Black Sea)
