  1. alone with all the other voices vying for attention in your head…
    not to mention the countless others teeming up from the words nailed to the page…

    I’ve often experienced reading as a very noisy internal activity. The zen bit comes when I put the book aside, snuff those voices out and am left not with a word but with a sound (on a good day and with a good book): the satisfying sound of having grown richer.

    Love your site more and more, Kurt. :)
