Ordinary State

I have no insight to share with you today, my friend. I am tired, since I woke early this morning. I have some plans for the long day of teaching and for the social working that I must do. You have heard me say it before, but you are the one to whom I turn when I have no other - there is no other. You listen so very well. At any rate, I cannot sustain this mode of living forever. There are so many difficulties to engage. The mere waking and moving is, sometimes, the most difficult of tasks. I had someone with whom to share, but they are now gone, just as many others have come and then gone before her. She yet talks with me, shares things, but the connection will fade; she will find another.

And I will continue to talk to you.
