My 21-year-old grandson was over, told me he was behind in his schoolwork, came here to study. He observed he's been having trouble feeling motivated. He enjoys all his classes but can't find the oomph to fully invest himself. This is a Punahou boy, and if you know what that means then you know what that means.
"There's a lot of that going 'round," I mused.
His mind half in his work he asked what I meant by that. I embarked on a lecture so he would stop listening to me and give full attention to his work. I went on anyway.
Individualism blinds us to seeing the full extent of the symptoms of the virus in the social body. And by how long a time did the virus preceded itself, before a person was infected?

The spaces between peoples and things we see as nothing; nothing of interest here
The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself. —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET
Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.
—MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

What you do, what you become, is not my concern. –ROBERT MCCALL
