Enjoy Whatever Is Next

The last line of the book jumped out and spoke to the day, the times: “we can be communities or networks that enjoy whatever is next.” The drumbeat pervasive throughout the last 18 months, no matter the source, has been that we will be a community or network that will suffer whatever is next. The last line of the book spoke from what, to now, has been the excluded middle, between the two polarities of ostensible adverse difference here in the US. Then again, that unvoiced excluded middle, the one that looks to “enjoy whatever is next”, is what will actually carry on. This unarticulated, excluded voice inadvertently and unselfconsciously reveals the selfie of a contemporary US obsessed with discomfort, dis-ease, stress and disaster – things to be “suffered”. It was the best of times, the worst of times, not. This is a time where the absence of enjoyment has been imposed on all as a given, something needing to be enforced for the public good. Is it criminal to “be communities or networks that enjoy whatever is next”?
