Thinking, this week

Sometimes life comes rushing at you, and there's no time to sort through that pile of stuff you have to do, to think about, to figure out. There is only reaction, and the simplest human emotions are compounded by action upon action. These moments when everything is urgent we feel the pull, so delicate, so strong, so absolute. We learn not to pull back, not to pull away, but to stretch, to reform what we've been, what we thought we once were, and hope we come out on the other end recognizable, at least.
