A friend wrote me today and told me that she didn't know if I'd noticed, but I'd been sighing constantly her whole visit.

"i don't know if you even realized how much you were sighing. every time you sighed, i felt so much sadness for you. there are no words, only deep sighs from you innermost places. the heaviness can only be expressed in the sigh."

I do notice. I just sigh a lot now. Sometimes it's a quiet, hmmph. Sometimes it's a longer sigh- ahhhhh.
