Over and over.


We were walking along the sidewalk in the grass towards our parked car,

warm sun heating pavement,

the halls and dorms a blur of brick around us,

bare feet blistered from *pretty* shoes feeling cool blades,

when he says,

"After this year, we won't be connected to anyone here."

Mind racing.

Feelings searching.

Heart sinking.

How many memories did we have invested here?

Too many to count.

Friends, time, family, experiences.

Jobs, school, homes, life.

Our cups over-floweth.

Over and over and over.

holy experience
