Geology of a Trauma

When someone you love and trust tells you suddenly that they no longer reciprocate those feelings, the physical reaction, the force of the blow, should not be underestimated. As I shivered in the cold early evening air of the Pemigewassett last Friday, standing outside Galehead Hut after dinner, I thought of the violence that must have caused the fracturing of this slab of rock: the sudden cleaving of something that appears timeless but is as helpless in the teeth of change as you or I. Kiss your family and hold them close and never take a day with them for granted.
