3 rainy days: 1999

I think it’s a myth that blind people have a greater sensitivity to the world around them.
That they somehow know more about the world.
I think they just pay more attention.

When your world is dark, you see with your fingers.
And if you pay enough attention, if you surrender yourself to this new sight, you will be amazed how much you can perceive.
Your fingers will remember nooks, curves, clefts.
And your skin becomes a map that not only shows the territory travelled, it captures it.

The thousand kisses that rain down on you soak into your skin.
And suddenly, the storm is inside the room.
Swallowing you whole.
