The Use of Talking

There is no end of things in the heart.

Time Out for Reality

Things have been a little hectic on the mountain this week, and I haven’t been able to post much. Without going into details, we’ve been having difficulty with health insurance for one of the junior Castorps, the one as it happens, who needs it most. I’ve spent a good deal of time over the last three weeks and a great deal over the last few days trying to negotiate bureaucracies of various kinds, climbing up telephone trees, visiting offices, conferring with doctors and social workers, trying to gather data and reconstruct previously submitted forms, etc, etc. In short, I feel as if I’ve fallen out of Herr Mann’s novel and into one of Herr Kafka’s.

If you’re the praying kind, prayers appreciated. If not, good thoughts will do. I hope to get back to blogging in the next few days.
