VESSEL 01: The Rectangular Lighter Case

“If it is a human thing to do to put something you

want, because it’s useful, edible, or beautiful, into a

bag, or a basket, or a bit of rolled bark or leaf, or

a net woven of your own hair, or what have you,

and then take it home with you, home being another,

larger kind of pouch or bag, a container for people,

and then later on you take it out and eat it or share

it or store it up for winter in a solider container or

put it in the medicine bundle or the shrine or the

museum, the holy place, the area that contains what

is sacred, and then the next day you probably do

much the same again—if to do that is human, if that’s

what it takes, then I am a human being after all.

Fully, freely, gladly, for the first time....”

- Ursula LeGuin, Carrier Bag of Fiction
