the universe won

a day of pearl sky, no landmarks to mark the passage of time

a day of missed communication, of texts unsent, of emails returned with errors, of phone numbers out of order… it felt as if the universe was saying No, Kate, Not Today, and I kept saying YES! TODAY! and pushing forward as if, somehow, pushing would make it so.

I think we all know how it turned out.

One thought on “the universe won

  1. Funny, no matter how many times one reads this book the story always ends the same. After a not-so-fun-at-the-time trip to Mexico, I’ve learned that when I hear “Plan B” I know to stop pushing or I’m heading back to not-so-fun territory. Once was enough but apparently isn’t.
