I like this. I'm not really concerned about what happened afterward. The immediacy of the moment combined with two people's past is what resonated with me.
Ulay and Marina
Today, while walking home I realized that the arc of the sun becomes lower in the sky as we head into winter. I don't know why I never read about this or noticed it before, but I finally put two and two together. I mean, it made sense why the days are shorter. I've gone through my days not noticing so much around me. It made me consider a thought that could save me. If I can stay curious, keep asking questions, I'll be alright. When I stop wondering, I'll know I'm in trouble.
