Contemporary Life Is Not Just Unreal—It’s Irreal

. . .you look over your fence and see your neighbor in his backyard, with a big pot over a roaring fire.  Clouds of steam are rising from it, & they bring to you the sharp sweet smell of something cooking, something you know very well, but somehow it doesn’t fit the scene. . .
