I’ve been reading Anne Michaels’ The Winter Vault and at one point Avery notices the quietness in Jean and he reflects on it saying that her heart is thinking. I read that line in the early morning when the entire world seemed quiet and it did something funny to my heart. I sat there while my parents and my brother were fast asleep, while every light in the house was turned off except the glow of my bedside lamp and I cried. There’s something about silence that I like to wear around my shoulders like a blanket and I’ve spent my entire life fighting everyone who wanted to take the blanket off, to get me speak more. But it’s not that simple for me. My heart is still trying to make sense of all its gears and rhythms and sometimes at night, I think the world is trying to do the same thing.

Glass Beach, Northern California
From 1950 to 1967, residents of Fort Bragg, California chose to dispose of their waste by hurling it off the cliffs above a beach. No object was too toxic or too large such as household appliances, automobiles, and all matter of trash were tossed into the crashing waves below, eventually earning it the name The Dumps. Then in 1967, city leaders closed and reclaimed the beach. Various cleanup programs were undertaken.
Over the next several decades, the pounding waves cleaned the beach by breaking down everything but glass turning the sand into a sparkling, multicolored bed of smooth glass stones. The California Department of Parks and Recreation purchased the land and incorporated it into MacKerricher State Park in 2002.
