when we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. i saw this happen today as the sun went down. and yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! no herons, no distant music, not even the taste of his lips. how is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? life moves very fast. it rushes us from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.
