Had this big rough lump of concrete took the place of the right half of my head for the past four days. Then today a book I ordered arrived with the mail. I haven't read any Hemingway for a decade and last week I took a notion to re-read him. Just read up to chapter seven of his 'Islands In The Stream'. I don't know if it was the book or the meds I've been loading up on, but I'm starting to feel that chunk of concrete breaking up and getting smaller. Boy, that chapter seven on the boat after the shooting of the shark and the releasing of the emotions and the tension felt good. Any one else find they can lose themselves in a book for a spell and nearly forget the pain?
