What we take into our own hands can be so immense and is often greater than and outside our awareness -- or even our doing. The hands of others play deeply into our lives and even if you've done everything right, it certainly isn't healthy to repeatedly punch yourself for every inequity.

Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.
