Rat snake

Meet my new friend. He is already friends with Chonky the Bear. Species is the Pennsylvania rat snake.

Quote of the day

"Necessary: An eye for what is twilight. Sundown is sunrise elsewhere. Charaterologically: one is an optimist or pessimist. Change is effected through radiations.... Visible changes are preceded by less visible ones and these by ones that are invisible. Already technology rises up as modus vivendi from great depth. The precedence of spiritual change before technological, technological before political, political before strategic....Profit and loss lie in what is unforeseen. Just for this reason one should not lose faith too soon, not even in questions of power." 
- Ernst Junger, Maxima-Minima, Additional Notes to The Worker (1964)

Ernst Junger's 'The Forest Passage' (1951) and 'Eumeswil' (1977)

Never knew that this was out there, but two of my favorite Junger books - which have been translated into English - are here presented in one volume.  If you enjoy Junger then these, obviously, are worth picking up in hardcopy. But this download containing both volumes in .pdf should give you an idea for what each is like.  Link HERE.
