Feeling Our Way Through a Haze of Bullets
Wow, you really feel things, don’t you?
Yes, I do.
Are you, like, an empath?
I used to feel pride when I was in conversations like this. Yes! Yes! I am a deeply feeling person. Isn’t that great?
But now, not so much. These days I say to myself something to the effect of, “Yes, I am. Aren’t you?”
