Who knew that you could have too much quiet? 

Who knew that you could tire of having too much time to read, to fidget with puzzles and rearrange closets and drawers?

Who knew that a Marco Polo or FaceTime chats with family would be the highlight of your day?

Who knew that you would see pulling weeds as an adventure?

Who knew it wouldn’t matter if you didn’t vacuum or make the bed or leave a dish in the sink overnight, because no one would be coming to your house?

Who knew that an act of kindness – a flower left on your doorstep or a teenager offering to return your cart would bring a swell to your heart and unstoppable tears to your eyes?

Who knew that the meaning of a word could change?


Who knew?

I didn’t.

Did you?
