Do you ever look back at events, with the hindsight of years gone by, and wonder how exactly you were able to get through them?
In high school, a friend of mine commented on this phenomenon. She and I had gone to Homecoming (with our respective dates) a mere two weeks or so after another friend of ours had died.
“How did we do that?” she asked me much later. “How did we go to a dance after all that?”
