‘I believe you’re entering a phase
of your life in which many different things
will occur. The disappearance of your cat is only
the beginning.’ Good things or bad things? ‘Good things and
bad things. Bad things that seem good at first, and good things that seem
bad at first.’ That sounds very general. Don’t you have any more concrete information?
‘Yes, I suppose what I am saying does sound very general, but after all when one
is speaking of the essence of things one can only speak in generalities.
Concrete things certainly do command attention, but they are
little more than trivia. Side trips. The more one tries to see
into the future, the more generalized things become.’
