HE WAS BOGGED DOWN IN INDOLENCE, WITHOUT IDENTITY

2008

Sugar / Drawings.

He was bogged in indolence, without identity . . . The cities and forests and beings were also without identity, they were shadows, they exerted neither pull nor goad . . . His being was without axis or contour, its centre everywhere and periphery nowhere, an unsurveyed marsh of sloth.
-Samuel Beckett
