She said, "And here I was enjoying
a quiet morning with no numbers."

I said, "You quip while I try to enter
the deep satisfaction of being
caught up."

saves the least of these."

on me in my moment of small
satisfaction."

She said, "I just finished my reading
of Simone Weil who wrote, 'the solution
to a balance between the individual
and the collective is precisely what
people are thirsting for today.'"
