    1. Yes, I first came across this neologism a couple of years ago. it is a word for its time, to be sure. I think many of us live inside of it. I think it has become a part of who we are.

  2. This interview was very thought provoking. I’m still working my way to the ending of Overstory. I plan to read Bewilderment. As a special education teacher, I always questioned why my students were expected to do all the conforming. They taught me a lot by being themselves. I’m anxious to meet Robin in Bewilderment. Richard Powers came up again today in our blog zoom gathering. I realized I never listened to a conversation between Ezra Klein and Richard Powers that I had bookmarked. I listened today. Here’s the link: https://www.raintaxi.com/small-light-portable-universes-an-interview-with-richard-powers/. Richard Powers is a very interesting human being. I wish he would invite me to his home in the Smokey Mountains so that we could have our own conversation outside on his deck under the trees. I have lots of questions I could ask him!
