A quote from the inside...

Una, age 9, as she opened a piece of junk mail beside me:
"Junk mail is our only connection to the outside world."

  1. Every cloud has a silver lining. Una knows!

  2. When I said to her, "Really, junk mail is our only link?", she responded, "That and Wal-Mart."

    It's kinda pathetic, really...

  3. Pathetic? I don't think so. An incredible blessing? Definitely.

  4. Actually, I am inclined to agree that it is a blessing that our contact with the "outside" is so limited. And thank God that the contacts are fairly mundane.

    Pathetic was the sigh that accompanied the statement. Or perhaps "melodramatic" would be a better word.

    Una sometimes thinks she is missing what she is not permitted. Hopefully the truth will come to her with maturity and a little more [vicarious] experience.
