I have also wondered why Silk habitually circularly caresses his cheek. A
peculiar gesture which I don't believe is ever explained. A rather off-the-
wall suggestion...The sacrament of Confirmation involves (or involved when I
was confirmed) a ceremonial slap on the cheek by the Bishop. I forget the
significance--I forget much--but, isn't the sacrament an initiation into "full
mature membership" into the Christian Community? Perhaps Silk is still reeling
from the Outsider's blow.

A bit off the wall, I know:)
