Quiet. Relax your breathing, and let everything you feel just fall through your fingers like sand. It could all happen as seamlessly as the air flows through the vents. Hold onto the blanket if that's what gives you comfort now, and know that it won't always be this way, that it won't always affect you this way. No one is or ever will be to blame. Things come and things go. The language of Buddhism is attractive and calming, and I wonder how many people become Buddhists for this reason. But it doesn't matter--enlightenment means being one with nothing.
