I have learned there’s a treatment to amputate whatever silence cannot be tolerated, whatever noise needs hushed. Extremities are a nuisance, even when Nature herself dictates that I receive the gift of acute feeling for a time. To numb is the norm; Experience has become a choice against the grain-- to dive in, to know, to stay sane amidst the chaos.
"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
