3. "Do you hear it?" Samuel asked, his eyes penetrating."I don't hear it...but I know it's there." I struggled to express something that I'd never put into words. "Sometimes I think if I could just SEE without my eyes, the way I FEEL without my hands, I would be able to HEAR the music.

He summed up the soldiers' take on potted meat: "We could undoubtedly survive on these rations a lot longer than we'd care to live."
