Hobbes's Box

As it snowed this past Sunday, May 18th, here in the Catskills of New York, we moved this gorgeous box into the Book Barn. The white streaks in the photo are snowflakes deep in the heart of May.

Thomas Hobbes is the guy who decided that without political community, human beings, left to their own devices, would lead lives that were nasty, brutish and short.

Heavy shit.

This box was so heavy we think Hobbes himself might be curled up inside.
