What would Rescue Her was Time Itself

 ” I wondered how often the future waits on the other side of the wall, knocking very quietly, too politely for us to hear, and I was filled with longing to reach back into my life and  inform that unhappy girl:  all around her was evidence proving her sorrows would end.  I wanted to tell her that she would be saved, but not by an act of will….what would rescue her was time itself and, above all, its inexorability, the utter impossibility of anything ever staying the same.”

—-Francine Prose, The Peaceable Kingdom

I love you Miss M…..feel better soon.
