Sometimes I get so immersed in my own company, if I unexpectedly run into someone I know, it's a bit of a shock and takes me a while to adjust.
And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me.

The life she'd led, each of the places she'd called home sending unexpected shoots toward the next, had made her open to almost anything.
Unexpected intrusions of beauty. This is what life is.
Expect everything, I always say, and the unexpected never happens.
There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore.
