Dear Anne,

As an undergraduate, your life currently revolves around words --- listening to words, writing words, speaking words, thinking in words. Have you ever considered what it would be like to go a couple of hours without even thinking in words, let alone speaking, reading or writing them?

That's exactly what Mystic Wing did the other day, and he writes beautifully about the experience here.

It might seem somewhat ironic to you, Anne, that a person would first experience a period of wordlessness and then compose such beautiful language to describe that experience, but then life is mostly ironic to begin with, isn't it?
