The Age of Our Orange Nightmare

You would have enjoyed one of the presentations I saw the other day, my creating and distorted friend. This young man had the ability to present on anything at all, and what a student chooses to discuss speaks, of course, to what occupies their minds, to what is there for them. This young man wanted to discuss stress. He talked about how stress does things to us that one would not immediately suspect, should one be a rather young person. Hair can disappear; sickness of a real, physical kind can manifest itself; death even can result, though the student did not talk about death.

It is a turning inside out that makes stress what it is, as if whatever is the point, or the focus, of the stress becomes mangled...but sometimes slowly sometimes instantly.
