to be watching Train to Busan
and the Watchmen series,
with their themes of fear of affliction
and the afflicted
and how meek the previously confident
can become in the face of a mortality
that they can't control
(or one of those moments that show the little-to-none they had anyway)
and of world-changing cataclysms
that served as the refocusing agent
some long asked (longed/prayed) for
and whether it will make a difference
if it does, how long it will last
until the previous conceits and fetishes and dalliances
come back again
because memories die with their empires...
Sitting here, this way locking in, for word from a stranger to say,
"You're safe, go back to being essential,"
"We're so sorry. Do what you can. Good luck."

I am currently Reading Between the World and Me. I had an idea of what it was supposed to be, but it is not what I expected.
I just opened my library app to see if there is an audiobook available to check out.
I see that there is someone waiting to read it.
That makes me feel good.

I'm thinking something about words and base meanings and emotions and the danger difficulty of denotion vs connotation of defining (feeling) with words.
How does one reliably and repeatedly convey emotion? And do we document emotion. What does "she was sad" mean and say?
Is emotion compatible with the past tense?
Can one talk about what was (a feeling) without what is (a feeling)?
How do we convey emotion without the feeler present?
THEY felt that then. WE didnt.
Why cant i have a pronoun general enough to refer to any possible person that is SINGULAR.
