And then there were two, and soon only one would remain.

I have thoughts to tell.

The situation seems much like my white rose - that is to say, an odd one. We thought at first that its petals were falling off one by one, never having bloomed ... but now we see that it is not dying. Rather, it is blooming. Perhaps we search too closely for signs of failure.

When we were giving gloomy predictions, I was told to stop the rose then and there in its processes; take it from its water and hang it to dry. But I don't want to dry it, to preserve it as it was. I much prefer it in its state ever-changing, continually developing. I do not want the crusty remains of something which was at once both soft and vibrant.

We make choices; these choices may lead us to and may open or close future paths to us. That one did not gain admission at her first school of choice, that one almost did not join the club via which we all met. This one did not know what to do, and her indecision guided her here. Yet here we all are, here we all have left, here we all will return. We are in a constant state of friendship, yet it is something that has not ceased to grow, to change: we make our choices, our reality differs with each step. We meld ourselves and each other, and this is how it is.




















He's probably had better days.
