Can anything ~be done~ with the awareness of being within or undergoing hardship other than acknowledging that awareness and riding it out? What does this say about the ability/inability to rationalize or act ~out of~ suffering?
How can we talk about equality in healthcare without equality in society?
Notebook entry on October 2, 2018
9:10 am, waiting room. People rushing, apologizing for minutes. The parking lot was full. “I’d like to make an appointment.” “How about next month?” Holding time to cram us in. This mole is new and dark in the middle of my chest. From a pale pore to an odd shape. An island, collecting the sun of my life. Forming near my heart. Doctor, please see me.
