the right anger?

There's a curious quote accredited to Aristotle, “anyone can be angry, that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right reasons and in the right way...” (and because I find the original ending a bit of an anti-climax I've taken the liberty to create a deep:black worthy ending for it) “...that's a work of art”.

 

'Anger' is a theme that keeps coming up in our work again and again; I suppose it's a bit of the poor cousin of conflict and seems to be even more embarrassing than the former.
