    even "liking" this writing is about agreeing on particulars. For me, it's about "how to contemplate our conditioned existence in this fleeting world." That's what you led me to do. Speaking for myself, as "enlightened" or just oriented toward contemplation as I believe myself to be, I go through a good portion of my day "getting and spending," as Wordsworth said, or to paraphrase, laying waste my powers. Maybe many people do because it appears a luxury to contemplate because of the "non-negotiable lifestyles" into which we find ourselves progressively inured. Whatever the case is, I'm grateful for your writing's pulling me out of the moment I was in to remember the vulnerability of "garment of mutuality" (MLK, Jr.) in which we're wrapped. There doesn't have to be exactitude in the numbers but credit, to me anyway, for being led to a place where pondering that alone became possible.
