tomorrow - or rather, later this morning - i will take a statistics exam. directly afterward, i will drive to the airport and fly back home for my husband's grandmother's funeral.
her death was not altogether unexpected - she was ninety-four, and increasingly frail - but it was sudden and very sad.
my husband will stay up north, while i will return to finish out the semester. another exam, two papers, a presentation. i'll pull out the holiday decorations - thread crochet snowflakes, colored lights. The year folds up, and touches corners.
holy saltmartin, why can't you beat time?
