Over-Surge Saturday

 A   L   O   H   A  !

We owe more 

to our illusions than 

to our knowledge.

         Lafcadio Hearn

I felt very still 

and empty, the way 

the eye of a tornado 

must feel, moving dully 

along in the middle of 

the surrounding hullabaloo.

          Sylvia Plath

There's not a word yet, 

for old friends 

who've just met.

   Jim Henson

The artist's job is 

not to succumb 

to despair-

      Woody Allen

Dreaming Of Fish

Beyond the edge 

of the world 

there’s a space where 

emptiness and substance 

neatly overlap, where 

past and future form a 

continuous, endless loop. 

And, hovering about, 

there are signs no one 

has ever read, chords 

no one has ever heard.

Haruki Murakami


"Surge capacity is a collection of adaptive systems — mental and physical — that humans draw on for short-term survival in acutely stressful situations, such as natural disasters. But natural disasters occur over a short period, even if recovery is long. Pandemics are different — the disaster itself stretches out indefinitely.
“The pandemic has demonstrated both what we can do with surge capacity and the limits of surge capacity,” says Masten. When it’s depleted, it has to be renewed. But what happens when you struggle to renew it because the emergency phase has now become chronic?"
