I wrote a lot of quotes down. They were inspirational.
The quotes were scrawled in the back of a planner.
They were free of context,
so I applied them to what was Happening to make sense of what was going on.
I felt much better.
The words floated in space until someone great put them in order,
and it was really the only way that I could process that time,
because without the words, what else might have happened?
I didn’t pay attention to the dates in the planner,
and the numbers under the days didn’t really matter, after all.
Thank goodness those quotes were there, though.
I had to write them down as soon as they were said,
because it might not ever make sense unless the words were arranged that way.
