A faint glow. If that makes sense. And the breakthrough that is communication. The other breakthrough of the return: talking to each other. And (here we go again with the layer-upon-layer) talking to each other about talking to each other. This time round, the future will be discussed and planned rather than leapt into. It will be as unpredictable as ever, as guided, as meant, as felt, as unforeseeable, but in the middle of it all, we will be talking about how we want it to be, and how to make it that way.
Whether that makes any difference to the outcome, no idea. But let us carry forward the communication we make, the habit of communication, the kernel of togetherness in the paradox of separation. A bird flies when it believes it can fly.
