Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning, specially if it’s early, I leave my CI and HA on a side table and just listen to the ringing in my head as my coffee silently brews.

Sometimes when walking in the woods I turn up the volume to hear the leaves breathe or if it is winter to hear the the bones rattle.

Sometimes I don’t worry about the quality of what I am hearing. If the meaning comes through I count that as success.

Sometimes, when I am alone – I sing. What a jolt! But it seems to have a positive effect. Don’t ask. I don’t have a good answer as to what that means.

Sometimes when out in the real world I forget my disability for brief moments and I feel almost normal. Of course that’s an illusion. I tell myself, “Give it up! The whole concept of normalcy is an illusion.”

Sometimes I secretly enjoy a really good illusion. You don’t even have to hear to do it.

Sometimes it helps to realize that I am really really deaf.

At all times I am grateful for the help I have received. Thank you.
