It Might Have Been Otherwise

Well written Cynthia! I especially like the poem. Sharing with all my peeps: On a zoom call yesterday, I told a friend and colleague that I’ve been struggling and feeling moody lately. “I’m not my usual bright-penny self,” I said, “I’m feeling a little dampened, a little low.” She paused a long time.
