Thank you Donna-Luisa. I appreciate these words.

A couple of folks who responded didn’t really understand what I was trying to communicate. But in their own vociferousness they were proving my point — that the moment has made many of us feel more alive. Even in the heat of the rant.

I was not meaning more happy alive, more Disney alive — I meant more alive “in the unified spirit of rage,” as you so perfectly put it.

If you are being chased by an orange rhino and are about to be crushed to smithereens (thanks, again), you are VERY MUCH ALIVE, just not smiling.

So thanks for getting it. I will keep writing my friend. We are in this together, Donna-Luisa.
