People have been very forgiving of my oversights, outbursts or overall displays of confusing expression. They’re all older than me. I consider they’ve been there, done that and understand in ways I’ve yet to greet upon. 

Sometimes a person’s grace can take you out of yourself, out of the microscope you might put yourself in and help you see how hyper-focus on the slides can easily take you away from the Petri dish and the life you were intended to birth.
