this is what being careful does to a person. it sets them up exactly where they are supposed to be at exactly the right time. if i wasn’t fighting with this person, then maybe i wouldn’t have spoken to this other person. if i was out with them, then i would have never been home to run into him. i am breathing despite all the chaos that whirls around me. it must be that whole “calm before the storm” . and if not, then maybe i can just see through the craziness these days. maybe i can just see the things that matter these days.
