Here I lie inside, peering painlessly through pane-glass window at the world of trees and paths, signs and pavement . . . and the cardinal’s and robin’s nests.
I am, by nature itself, an outlier to the virtual sights and sounds of the iMac, phones, microwave, iPads, and ringtones of “messages” to and from other insiders.
I am an outlier, trained to lie to myself, peering in pain through pane-glass virtual Windows in search of the world outside my window.
