I’d like to report better progress on my approach to recent and current events. However, great speed is hardly to be expected. What I have at the level of weeks of January 2018 is a collection of disconnected events. It isn’t until I move to a scale of months, quarters, and years that these events start to form patterns. I’ve gotten down to the scale of weeks several times, but haven’t pursued it forward or backward to the point where events at the larger scales are evident. We shall see what happens this time. It’s somewhat easier to track all this mentally, but mental images tend to get fuzzy unless the are anchored to details.
