     I broke down this morning and put my headphones in.  I'm feeling rather out of sorts due to a variety of factors, and I decided that being able to check out for 10 minutes was necessary.  Rather hypocritical, I know.
     It feels like when you walk around town (and subway) that 50% or more of the people you encounter are plugged in.  They can't hear what's going on around them; they're checked out.  I think about personal safety, about human connection.  I've often believed that it was a barrier to block everyone out.  But maybe it's an attempt to keep what's left of them, inside.  To stop the unraveling.
