Call Ended

First, an urgent text and request to talk…and of course I call… and we map a safer way through crisis. We unpack and name what hurts, and like so many times before, we deconstruct then rearrange a new way forward yet untested.

Time and circumstance prevent meeting face to face, that holy place Call Ended. small dolls standing on a cell phonewhere the language of eyes, body and breath complete the landscape of the living moment. Instead, pauses, heavy silence, exhortations…the terrain of one’s rocky life gets measured through handheld plastics and science, where the assurance of truly hearing and being heard, are left to trust, to chance, to hope, and some prayer, too.

“I am here. Call back as needed. Hang in there, and let’s agree to talk again and soon, okay?”

A mutual letting go, and then, Call Ended.
