right words

“The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is … the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

— Mark Twain

after a near-fortnight of monk-like existence — as is commonplace during a vipassana meditation course — i find myself searching for the just right words with which to share the experience… they will come and i will share…

for now, teju cole’s “open city” is providing apt balm for all that was awakened that must now be coaxed back, refashioned, and once again smoothed, slowly, into forms fit to face the world, with edges a bit crisper in some cases, rounded in others, and some new edges and forms altogether.
