Listen, and you will realize that we are made not from cells or from atoms. We are made from stories

Mia Couto

Molotov Cocktease Its been a long hard time so far. Too much of it has been about doctors, my doctors and yours. Making the move I have to meet a whole corps of new doctors. The usual suspects.
I realize I now have decades of experience dealing with the medical industry, sort of annoyed it never appears on job applications nor can I figure out how to put it in my CV.
So it really bugs me when friends get ill or come close to some other catastrophe. Then all my experience suddenly gets pretty worthless. It comes down to the hackneyed phrases, “Yeah, I had that”; “They gave me that pill”. Stuff that offers real consolation but what else can you say?
The only thing going through my head and heart is, “Hey! Don’t die. Don’t. Because as much as you might be suffering that doesn’t feel like as much as I’ll suffer if you die. So, don’t die.””
So I put together a mess of songs about doctors. That’s it. Too numb thinking about this and wondering if having radioactive blood gives me any special powers. I’ve been pointing my finger at things and making sound effects with my mouth but nothing’s happened. Nothing blew up, or grew to giant size or even levitated. I feel gypped.
