I have begun a weekly Zoom meeting, for now it is every Saturday afternoon, beginning a noon for me here is Hawai'i. You will have to do your own calculations to figure the time where you live. Things will change as I learn more about working all this tech stuff things. I have plans that may or may not manifest.

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 politics, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together. —JEANETTE WINTERSON, Gut Symmetries
