Under Tallmansville

Time passes. Listen. Time passes.

Come closer now.

Only you can hear the houses sleeping in the streets in the slow deep salt and silent black, bandaged night. Only you can see, in the blinded bedrooms, the coms and petticoats over the chairs, the jugs and basins, the glasses of teeth, Thou Shalt Not on the wall, and the yellowing dickybird-watching pictures of the dead. Only you can hear and see, behind the eyes of the sleepers, the movements and countries and mazes and colours and dismays and rainbows and tunes and wishes and flight and fall and despairs and big seas of their dreams.

From where you are, you can hear their dreams.

--Dylan Thomas, Under Milk Wood

I don't know..., but I feel akin. I wonder if I'm alone in thinking that living with the impropriety of media-distracted America is sometimes like being buried alive?

1 I was just reviewing a colleague's syllabus for a course I begin teaching in two weeks on Oral and Interpersonal skills, and I laughed at the page at the end that had a twenty-question quiz about his basic personal statistics, the kind many instructors give in a short speech at the beginning of the course.

I laughed because I knew he was giving his speech to students, many of whom mentally bugged out while waiting to hear what was directly required of them, only to find out that they had missed a wealth of points in what they thought to be insignificant minutiae.

I'm not sure I'd say I've felt buried alive, but I've surely felt the barrier of zoning out people tend to do that I associate with media overload - I think of it as a muffler.
