“We are attempting to play God, when maybe God put us
here in the first place.” Father Tomas’s words by the stream came back to me. I could see his stick in the
river, the water dividing on either side. “We can only move forward with what we have been given. Negotiate
the river of life. Of time. And we’ve been given this,” I pleaded, waving at our circle. “Family. Love. Joy. Life.
Can we not embrace it, for as long as we have it? Isn’t it what we all most dearly want, deep down?”
