I am not a poetry gal by any means. I love fiction and short stories and sometimes essays, but I am not drawn to the art that is poetry. Nevertheless I bring to you a Richard Siken quote - a first in my quote series. About change.
Everyone has that show that they love. For some it’s Friends. However, for others it’s the Office (for reasons I still don’t understand). For me, it’s How I Met Your Mother. Ted Mosby tells his kids the long, long, super long story of how he met their mother. The show has incredible storytelling features and is set in New York City (my hometown), and to the joyful displays when it means to be friends and do life together.
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only human being enraptured by fate. Or God. Or whatever the hell is making the sun rise in the east and set in the west day after day. As much as I am curious about how we got here and why it matters that we go, I am so much more curious by the ride of life itself.
