I was walking through the desert with the Beetles song
Norwegian Wood stuck in my head. The longer I walked the
louder it got until it was almost deafening. Over and over
it replayed as I continued on.
A loose stone and a careless step sent me tumbling. The
song stopped and its absence was a shock worse than the fall.
Surrounded by sand, rock and silence I felt truly alone.
I was not just lost but alone.
The sun beat down but I continued on.

I no longer walked in silence.
