The mechanics of the day are strangely comforting. The slow measured spoonfuls of coffee I feed into the pot, the neat sections I make on the peel of the orange, the steps I can take blindfolded from the kitchen to the computer, the light of the sun.

I have made endless conversation, spewed useless advice, looked at an empty mailbox, taken the trash out, and am now sitting down. Quietly.Finally, after a very long time, I have been blessed with a deliciously evocative, rich, distance.
