We live in an age of frailty, fear, and morbidity.
Where will the kindness and intelligence come
from that can save us? -- Luis Buñuel


We spend so much of our lives navigating a sea of complex and conflicting signals, distracted and frustrated by random obstacles to understanding; doing our best along the way to avoid the conflict and sadness that combine to defeat our best intentions. Our task is a harvest of confusion, winnowing kernels of value from the cascade of screaming chaff – finding in the residue a hook to hold memory, an anchor to slow loss.
