hard pressed to remember where or how i’d found him and suspect it doesn’t matter
he helped me once when at the last minute i’d decided i couldn’t help myself.
it cost me more than i’d wanted to spend but he’d given me more than i’d asked for
a year later he showed up in my inbox
reminding me what i needed to do and keeping an undertone of victory in his greeting
– i’m not sure folks like that know what a blessing they are to folks like me but suspect it doesn’t matter
on some level we all know how important it is to show up not just to be counted, but to represent our number
