  50. 50. “The weight sets in" and we are forced to face down everything that came before us, and that will come after. " Minds unhinge as galaxies expand, threatening to crush our sense of significance with their infinite hands. " The universe feeds us questions," starving us of answers. " “What am I doing?”" “Who am I?” " “Why am I here”
  51. 51. “ A disaster doesn’t have to be the end of the world, it can be something as simple as waking up to find that you are out of coffee. How can one get started in the early morning with out their java or “go juice”?
  52. 52. “My hopes for a normal life have deflated like a cold balloon.”
  53. 53. “With$liPle$noCce$and$only$so$much$Cme$to$prepare,$it’s$Cme$to$break$out$the$ $shovels$and$snow$blowers$again,$there$is$a$blizzard$in$the$air”$$
  54. 54. “In desperation, nature seeks our help. It crawls on us in order to grab our attention-wanting us to take action.”
  55. 55. “Can we ever mend a broken love, or is it stuck to carry on like the shredded pages of your once most beloved novel?”
  56. 56. “Everything I do today can have a lasting effect on my life in the future, I don’t know where to go, or what path to take. Maybe I should leave it up to fate. Flying away from home; leaving the nest, I’m drifting with the wind, Where will I go next?”
  57. 57. “We can gather up the fragments of our world that remain, the colored happy memories and learned lessons, and bring them up around us so that perhaps next time confronted with disaster, we may use them to shield ourselves from harmful shards.”
