Yesterday was the anniversary of my head injury one year ago. Last night, I quietly drove myself to the same emergency room and parked the truck and walked into the hospital emergency room and looked around. I was hoping for some kind of crack in a blank wall. I have amnesia regarding the accident and for most of the week afterwards. A friend asked me last night if I was sentimental about certain events that have happened in my life. . In this case, I thought, it is more than an event. It is rebirth. “Yes,” I replied.

Outside the door, pale yellow daffodils stand tall in the spring rain.
