The image I return to is that of shirleym and tactisle putting the ear rings in the top part of each other's ear. How gentle and careful they were, how precise. How they murmured to each other - are you all right, yes that's it, okay it's done.

I miss people. But about once a week we'll be driving around and I'll just burst out laughing. I made it. I'm out.
