December 10th, Year 22

Joseph has left. He may have been abducted by aliens, or the Mexican drug cartel is using him as a mule, or Fidel Castro has him personally rolling all of his cigars, or he has stepped into a hole that leads to 1959.

He wrote me through electronic mail, days after his departure. There was nothing it contained worth remembering. Not one word explaining his sudden disappearance. The kite has taken flight, and I do not know when the wind will die down.

The heart must be trained. All savagery must be removed. It must be quieted. It must be fully subdued.

The mind must be trained. All savagery must be removed. It must be quieted. It must be fully subdued.

And when this is accomplished, not much remains.
