May 7, 2018: Lifelines

Things happen unexpectedly all the time. It can happen during the most ordinary moments: checking the phone while waiting for an OT session to begin, or returning a phone call while attending a birthday gathering. You could be home, giving the weekly call to family to catch up with them, or traveling to New York to attend an event. These ordinary moments can be followed up with surprising news in an instant. You catch your breath. Your heart skips a beat. You process the information, yet the words fail to come. After some time (it could be a few hours, or a day), you reach out to those close to you. You share with one another, and hold on, since kindred bonds strengthen delicate lifelines.
