"I try to make a point of being seen.  Sometimes, when I'm out, I'll buy a juice even though I'm not thirsty.  If the store is crowded I'll even go so far as dropping my change all over the floor, the nickels and dimes skidding in every direction.  I'll get down on my knees.  It's a big effort for me to get down on my knees, and an even bigger effort to get up.  And yet... All I want is not to die on a  day when I went unseen."
