Well, I wish people could say that about themselves: I do what I can do as well as I can do. And that's my part. I speak for a lot of people when I say I can't fix it all. But I can still take care of my own corner. And my corner involves writing what I write and saying what I say and hoping that it's useful.

Well, if everyone takes care of their corner, together we can all accomplish a lot.

Yeah and ultimately, it's hopeless, as I say. The whole thing is going to fall into the sun. But meanwhile" we act "as if' what we do is important and that this life means something. And that's not because we'll find out the meaning of it some day; it's because on any given day, we have the capacity to give it meaning.

I've enjoyed myself immensely. Thank you for spending this time with me.

Well, you're welcome. I looked at your website and I thought, "My gosh, there's all this important stuff. Why on earth would she want to talk with me?" But I'm glad we did.

I am, too.
