[NetBehaviour] thinking, working here, through war there - (Alan Sondheim)

Thank you so much. And I agree with you; I've perused the Pinker book as
well as the critiques of it. I'm trying now to write nothing but an outline
of massiveness and the catastrophe that almost inevitably leads to.
The Dawn of Everything, already mentioned here, is somewhat of an antidote.
Music* is* an uplifting, that is certain - even when I play the sarangi in
mimicry of war and pastoral, I feel that. With shakuhachi and the breathing
necessary, it's calming. Then I can go back to the bleak grit of things
which I think have somehow to be confronted, if only at a distance.
The benefit sounds wonderful; as I've mentioned before, we're isolated here
in Providence, sometimes we go to the church down the street where there
are free Thursday noon concerts that can be remarkable. I haven't seen them
make a concerted effort to ask for donations though.
Thank you again!

Best, Alan, would love to hear from others as well
