"if it's good news, it must be someone else's"

273. on being away

while in the scottish highlands, i had zero access to news of any kind.
no internet cafes.
no cell support.
limited land line phone access.
for nine days.
upon my return, after checking in on the ny mets' antics for the week, i put cnn, msnbc and c-span on to catch up on the world.
in twenty three minutes, the knot in my chest returned.
i missed the chest knot.
i missed it like i miss deep gum cleaning.
i’m beginning to think i could survive dumping the whole ball of wax.
simplify, simplify, simplify.
i figure i'm half way there already, with the simple brain i have and all.
