february 24

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "Message in a Bottle" by The Police; "All By Myself" by Eric Carmen; "Only the Lonely" by Roy Orbison)

Tomorrow morning you wake up to discover that you are utterly alone.  (This is a familiar premise that narratives from "Twilight Zone" to "28 Days Later" have used.)  There are no neighbors, relatives, passersby, zombies-- absolutely no one.  What will you have to learn to survive?  How will you determine the value of what you learn without someone saying "good job" or giving you a grade?  Assume nothing and take nothing for granted: explain your next moves in detail.

1. Journal
2. What's in a Word? Etymologies & Meanings of Utopia & Nirvana
3. Discussion: Chapters 1-4 of Brave New World

1. Be compassionate.
