Hospital II.

The Runner / Wellcome ImagesAt the rehab hospital, there was a boy patient of about 14 years old. He had been hit by a car whose driver was talking on a cell phone.

I usually saw him when our physical therapy was at the same time. He did not talk. He had no affect. All he did was jog around and around the atrium, looking off into the distance, as if he was hearing the call of another world.
