"The itch for naming things is almost as bad as the itch for possessing things."

-- Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire. (1968).


...of all the tributaries that run together, which are remembered and which are obscured? Who named them and how did the naming itself do the work of conjuring power? Merely tracing the mutations of the country can’t restore what has been taken or destroyed; time’s river can’t flow backward. Yet the past gives force to present demands. It can burst the channels of monuments and history books..." -- Alicia Puglionesi, In Whose Ruins. (2022).
