There is a virus out there but it is not trying to get to your hard drive but your inside and outside.

& you can never completely rid yourself of this virus but you can be a more or less hospitable host.

& sometimes there is nothing you can do about it, and those

may be just the times when it seems most urgent to imagine
that you can do something. (There is a pleasure, also, in delusions of this kind: not of grandeur but of agency.)

But because some things are beyond redress it does not follow that every circumstance is without recourse, nor every case without prospect.
