Hangin’ with my gnomies


160515 All-Day Breakfast—Hangin’ with my gnomies—#214
In the universe, there are things that are gnome, and things that are un-gnome.

—with apologies to William Blake, Aldous Huxley, and Jim Morrison)

As we know, there are known gnomes; there are gnomes we know we know. We also know there are known un-gnomes; that is to say we know there are some gnomes we do not know. But there are also unknown un-gnomes — the gnomes we don’t know we don’t know.

—with apologies to Donald Rumsfeld, and D.H. Lawrence
