I finally figured out what I found so funny the other day as I read my old notebook (and folder leaves - remember those?) of poems. It was the kind of feather that knocks you over when you think, "Look at what I was intent on getting, when God had so much more in mind for me?!" This is not the same as "What was I possibly thinking?" Because, I knew what I was thinking. I was thinking that I was in love. And, I'm not about to make fun of my younger-in-love self. But, just looking at what I thought was "the best thing, ever!" even asking God whether He was sure He could "top this", I just laugh right out loud given my 20/20 hindsight. Yeah, each of whom I thought was "The One", was, clearly, at best "The Two".
After the laughs, I smile. I reflect just a tad on how things were and I'm either glad that it happened or glad that it is over. Most of all, I'm glad I had put it into words. Here now, from me at 20: "Virgin Territory" and at 21: "Company".
