Separation Anxiety

I inadvertently removed a bit of my body. It was the tip of my middle finger, including a small crescent of fingernail. I sliced it off while cutting cardboard to build a set design model. It was a weird feeling looking down and seeing a piece of me now separated from the rest of my body. I wonder what it must be like to see larger, more significant parts separated from you. Funny, I had no feelings like that when interior parts, such as tonsils, were removed. Not even when I looked at the placenta after my daughter was born.
