Reentry day. Coffee, Sunday paper, crossword puzzle, FaceBook, food shopping, laundry, cooking, football. The comforting details of daily routine. The world rages madly around us, but still we bag our apples and grind our coffee and check the meat specials, slipping easily (and silently) into familiar ways. You take the heavy bags, I'll grab these light ones, elevator or stairs? do-si-doing smoothly in our compact kitchen as though the steps to our dance were engraved in the floor like the numbered patterns in the sidewalks up on Broadway. We only bump into each other when we choose to.
