today, i held a brain in my hands.
i’m still struggling to find words that are expressive enough to describe the moment.
all i can say for now is that there is so much beauty inside the body. all throughout today’s gross anatomy lab, i looked at the cadaver whose back we’d dissected and marveled at the beauty of the slick muscles and the spinal cord. something in me hated helping my group with the scalpel, even though she wouldn’t be able to feel the cuts we made to her delicate nerves.
being a disciple of this silent teacher is remarkable. astounding. inconceivable.
these words are too small to wrap around it.
