All these years on, the accounting is still a mess.

New people and places and things to perhaps replace those lost.

How does a swelling of courage offset evaporation of faith?
How does unlooked-for new clarity replace trust that crumbled into dust?

Not the balancing of a body in movement (although I do know that pleasure – in dance and in Aikido), but the balancing of accounts of the earth itself. Everything that comes out of the earth goes back into it. Or almost everything.
