A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Stephen Dedalus, eat your heart out:
We recently digitized some slides, and this was one of them. Age ... 4? Yes, that's a snowman. And, yes, he's dropping a hat. He already has one on his head, see? That's why he's dropping it.
I think I actually remember that logic. I think I made an error and so I made the error into a hat. Which he was dropping. Because he had one on his head.
Such logical stretches are what I have long forged in the smithy of my soul.
