Peaceful Deafness

(Glorydoll Lucy head on Custom House girl body)
I finally realized what Ruth reminds me of-- though I can't really explain why. She reminds me of a young girl who is lost in her own world because she is deaf. She seems so inward-looking, and at perfect peace. Nothing can penetrate the safety of her walls... It's how I feel when I take my hearing aids out after a long, hard, noisy day. So there is no pity here. Just pure beauty...
