"I will stand. My kitchen has taught me about standing, even when the pot boils over, when my hands get scalded, when more than one appliance needs my attention and right now. Never ask why. Everything will get handled in good time. Learn to pace yourself. Timing is everything. As long as you remain standing you will be alright. Keep your eye on the dish. Leave the cleaning for later."

"The lover is fiction.
The fiction is kind.
The kindness is grief."
