One Fourth of July, McCormick was at Omega on a multi-level detox. In the sanctuary there, Ye Je Kang taught how to count to four. The path to enlightenment.

Many years after that misty weekend, Julie So—the department’s undisputed star—brought him home after an evening Joyce Seminar.

Her studio was spare but lived-in. Neat stacks of books. Postcards taped to the fridge. In the midst of those , Ye Je Kang’s round face. Then McCormick remembered. The girl in the white track suit, always cross-legged up front. They’d met before, but hadn’t.

Oh, Fate. Are You always a Savior?
