"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."
-- Jonathan Carroll
Not having seen each other in years, they met one day by chance and had a nice but superficial conversation on the street. Both knew there was so much more that could have been said but it wasn’t because once *those* floodgates were opened, who knows what might have happened. When they were saying good bye, he reached in his pocket and brought out a roller ball pen. Taking her hand, he turned it over and writing something on her palm, told her not to look until later. When he was finished he closed her fingers over what he’d written, kissed her on the cheek and walked away. Of course he must have known she would look immediately at her hand. There were seven numbers, seven very familiar numbers. Yet it took her a moment to realize why they were familiar: it was her old telephone number from back when they were together. These thousands of days later, he still remembered.

Walking towards me is a weeping young woman festooned with colorful tattoos all over her arms and legs. Dragons, elves, snakes,mermaids—none of them able to protect her from this moment in her life

His wife had done a very lousy thing to him and we were discussing it. Why did she do it? How could she? I said maybe there’s something you missed or forgot; some word or a significant sentence that had gone unnoticed prior to her selfish, cruel act that would explain it. He shook his head and said adamantly, ‘No, I’m not doing that. I’m not going to search for a logical, acceptable reason. What she did was wrong. That’s all— unacceptable, way over the line- wrong. I hate how people always go looking for reasons to justify others’ bad behavior. Because sometimes things aren’t justifiable— they’re bad, pure and simple. Sometimes people are just shitty and their actions prove it.
