I am a rationalist and a scientific man. I believe the rules of life become more intricate, there are unseen wires from each to each that we cannot see, not yet.

We are here to learn and not to forget, here to question and not to answer.

Even as I struggle ceaselessly for answers, I feel that this is right. Remembrance is enough, even if we cannot help but look for meaning. And there is meaning there too: not the meaning one finds in words, neither explanation nor exegesis (we have had enough of those!), but the recollection of people and what they did, the places we first saw them in, how they came and went.
