thought to what is said. Case in point: I just wrote a thing to Frank
that I now fear could very easily be misinterpreted or twisted to
mean something totally different than what I was actually thinking.
Will cross that bridge if it ever materializes. I am glad you came
back to this topic because I also worried that I approached it in
a way that very well could have come across as flippant or even
arrogant. I willingly admit my ignorance and stupidity in certain
matters. But fortunately these (i&s) are actually our best teachers.

specific ones. Are you at liberty to share actual dates and how they
line up? In my own life, I have a vague sense of the significance of
dates, but it's more along the lines of just being aware that a certain
date has meaning, or that particular numbers are important in my life.

Earlier today I sat watching two pieces of a burned wick float
around in the melted wax of the candle I have burning. These
two tiny particles were very active in the wax, turning over and
over as if in a repetitive dance of attraction and repulsion.
I pulled them out with the end of a wooden match and it stopped.
