Thanks! In my journey of self-discovery I am at the point of looking back. The idea of using the third person in a narrative to examine the past, especially the negative past, had not occurred to me . . . but will be incredibly useful. I'm in my sixties, having been too busy with work to take time to look back. Now I have little time and I plan to make the most of it.

I concurr with the ending paragraph about the cyborg transformations occurring now. Our young people jump from being babies to playing at being adults without any sense of what they are doing . . . if it is "fun" or everyone else is doing it . . . they do it. They are deep-sixing the paths to their souls without ever knowing they existed.

Our value to the youngest among us is keeping the paths to the soul alive and making them real in the real world. We are their only hope - or at least the only one that I see. Their parents are lost in materialsim and "me"ism. Who else to the young have?
