‘You can’t stop your mind – I think we have all realised that. But you can put your butt on a cushion.’ (from an unpublished talk)
I used to love listening to Lou give talks, when he still did. It took me a while to cotton on to the fact that something calamitous always happened before he gave the talk that meant he couldn’t give the talk he originally intended to – some dramatic news story or unexpected event. And a little longer to realise that this was actually his theme – that we couldn’t rely on what we expected to happen, or wanted to.
Dapper even in old age – I’m guessing this is Tassajara in 2003.
