When something is missing, all the pieces don’t add up.   i mentioned this to her because I thought that would help.  Normally,  when I think something helps, it actually never does.

And we went for a walk.  To pass the time, and make ourselves feel like we were doing something productive.  Productivity doesn’t help.  She fell.  on her face…
lost hope…
she was groping in the dark and running into things.
Sharp corners.  Lots of sharp corners.  Until she felt something.  It was his shin bone.  his pant leg.  his leg.
and what she thought was missing, was suddenly there.
What she thought was missing, was suddenly there.
What she thought was missing, was suddenly there.
but only for about 10 seconds…
Then something else was missing.
One must be diligent and always prepared.  The world around us is changing.  One must always be prepared.
Diligent.
She grabs his hand.
He grabs her shoulder.  They both take a few steps.  He wants to dance.  She says nothing.  She smiles.  She motions for him to wait…
Take his time…
then they dance.
