Korner Wisdom

No. 65: Sometimes something happens. This is an example of that.

No. 66: You never know. But sometimes you do.

Thus concludes our untitled 202-day, 10-hour, 34-min conceptual blog post, composed of zero content whatsoever. This apparent dearth of more than six months was anything but empty, however. As we informed the legions of Korner devotees who wrote in fearing the worst, we were simply trying to challenge conventional notions of what a blog is and provide a quiet, contemplative space for readers to notice that which is typically drowned out by the din of this obstreperous age. It has been alleged that our conspicuous lack of new Kontent has stemmed from a profound sense of dysphoria felt by the staff in the face of the confounding, distressing epoch in which we find ourselves. Others have suggested that the world in which Kreation can thrive no longer exists and that our recent lack of posting is the result of our exhausted capitulation to this stark realization. These "theories" couldn't be further from the truth. We assure you, it's just some good, old-fashioned avant-garde blogging! We conclude today with a message of hope for the new year from our spiritual adviser Rev. Ambo Dais:

The future crashes over us like a wave

Any high ground you clamber to is quickly annexed by the implacable tide

Take a gulp, hold it in, loose your grip

And where are we these days?

Good morning, dearest reader. It has been nearly three months since our last post. And even then we said nothing, quite intentionally. Really, we haven't spoken directly to you since January. Quite intentionally. We are taking an extended moment of silence. We're at a loss for words. And maybe that's ok. As a young, cocksure Korner, we'd have had plenty to say. We'd have known how to fix things with our beautiful thoughts and words, until things broke again. Then we'd start all over. But we're older and wiser now, which is to say we know less than ever. What we do know is we don't HAVE to say anything. What is it worth to utter words that don't ring with sincerity? Better we wait and reflect and pay attention until the proper time to say the proper thing emerges. The proper thing for us, the proper thing from us. In the meantime, why drown out those whose time it is to say their proper thing? But we feel a change coming. We've been listening to our discomfort, our grief, our sober acknowledgment of the affairs of this reality and, in listening, we think we're learning. And, in time, we'll have the proper thing to say. Soon. We think. Who can really say they know? While we can't know the future (many of us would question if it's even real), we can look to the past for something to say for now:

“Accolades and Raids”

I take no pleasure.
I take no pride.
This summit feels
like a base camp.
I won’t pat
myself on the
We’d only hear the
hollow thud of a
hollow feat.
Turn down the music
and cap the spirits.
There’s nothing cute
about a massacre.

--Chris Peebles, 2012

P.S. Maybe we've said a little something today. It felt pretty good!
