Several elsewheres

October 20, 2010

For weeks, I have barely attended the conversations around me. I know how to arrange my face, focus my eyes just enough, make appropriate but noncommittal phrases when necessary, but voices chatter like birds, like static, like the hiss of traffic going by outside my window.

I am here, I am several elsewheres. I am now, I am then, I am already ahead of myself. Leave a message, please, and I will return your call when I get away from where I’ve been–when I get where I’m going.


  1. You might want to consider applying for the show America’s Next Top Model.

  2. Travel safely.

  3. Squirrel, ha!

    Ashleigh, thanks. :-)
