The nice thing about your plea is the interesting answers that it fetched
up. I particularly like the poem by George that Winfried so beautifully
presented. (Didn't Wagner use the Norns in his "Ring"?)

But I think I like Andrew's lateral suggestion best. When the problem is
ready to be explicated, it will let you know.

In the meantime, you might like one of my rules of thumb: "when you don't
know what to do, do something" (or, in the spirit of the above paragraph,
"do something else").
