Daily Trauma:

    I thought the autopilot was engaged

    So I was not.

    She looked at me for assurance

    But I was not sure

    We hit the ground hard

    I held her afterward

    The old lady was kind

    The officer chewed tobacco

    The neighbor gave me his card

    He asked me if I knew anyone that needed tree trimming

    We made it to the game

    They lost

    That night I asked her to retell the event

    I said, “this was a traumatic event. It’s important we talk about it. Otherwise it will hide inside of you and come back up when you least expect it,”

    “I’m fine Daddy,” you said.

    “I’m not,” I said. “I need a hug.”

Wow! Good to talk about it -- wow. Is there a song there?
