“The world today can be a scary place,
It’s hard to keep your faith in the human race.
We’re running out of trees and we’re running out of space,
But we’ll never run out of good people.”
– Good People, Great Big Sea
On March 24, 2013 (before Tampa Bay, Ireland, Lake Willoughby, and Lake Memphremagog) on my way home from swimming that morning, I was in a car accident. It was far too late when I stepped on the brakes. Those moments before impact proceed extremely slowly, like clipped and individual images in my mind. In my being there is a resignation, a letting go. All the power I had to avoid this is long, long gone, now. I am simply here.
