Where our new now can be found

This is where our new now can be found: ranging widely and deeply, inventing the new conversations, working intricately, causing, causing, committing ourselves to each other.

This is what happens in major catastrophes—people see themselves in the same place, they see these as real persons, and they respond, committing themselves to these others. It is not a general audience that we commit ourselves to, but to known real persons, persons we might not yet have met but real ones none the less.

Committing ourselves to each other.

People may not get it the first time we say it. No matter: keep inviting, poking, opening.
