The Earth Did Not Move

Katie had a wonderful time with N yesterday and plans to see her again at Christmas. She called me before and after their meeting. We talked about all the same things we always do—her boyfriend and friends, how things are going at her job, what she needs to work on for school, when she's coming for Christmas.

No tectonic shifts, far as I can tell. Unlike Pangea, we remain connected.

With any luck, the continental drift (if it does occur) will happen in geological time: too slowly to perceive or worry about. Especially because I can do exactly as much about it as I can about the evolution of the planet: not a damned thing.

Katie will never leave you.

Deb said...

Amen, Michelle. So glad for the calm. So proud of you.

Jess said...

Well said Michelle. She may gain something new, but there's no reason it has to change what she already has. There's no changing that.

You are amazing and brave to document all this so honestly.

I am so in awe of your intelligence and how you use it. How do you come up with this great stuff all the time? I love it.
