In delicate balance, when a couple of words, a gesture, a snap, a shift, a casualty or coincidence, when a simple whisper can tip the scales. Sometimes our reference points disappear, leaving only guts, the visceral.
An emotional reflexion about the natural sadness of broken things. Any given morning that the pieces of the puzzle doesn't fit like they once did. A physical journey to the present to realise that the past does not come back.
