We’ve got to move forward, just got to. “Come on, feet, don’t fail me now.” Even in isolation we’ve got to move forward, tho’ it’s better to move forward with colleagues and friends, and “thinking together” people, like the great Kreisau Circle of 1944 and ’45. Sometimes you can’t help being alone as you forge ahead.

I got a little help here from Christopher Isherwood: some thoughts on love and religion from the last period of his life. Then Galsworthy chimed in, in a short poem entitled “Reminder”; and St. John, too.

Finally, and maybe most important, at least in the big scheme of things, I actually found that cover of “Help” by Bananarama. It made me so very happy. Like Blood, Sweat and Tears.
