Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
If there is such a thing as being conditioned by
climate and geography, and I think there is, it is
the West that has conditioned me. It has the forms
and lights and colors that I respond to in nature
and in art. If there is a western speech, I speak it;
if there is a western character or personality, I am
some variant of it; if there is a western culture in
small-c, anthropological sense, I have not escaped it.
It has to have shaped me. I may even have contributed
to it in minor ways, for culture is a pyramid to
which each of us brings a stone.
