I have never been good

at numbers. 

Some people can figure things

in their head. 

For me, pencil to paper is

a necessity. 

So much of adult life hangs

on numbers

loansinterestforecastsbudget salarymortgagetaxesaccounts

And there are numbers that stand for centuries years months days


I’ve skated through parts of life

on thin understanding 

but I am learning that

you can have a scores of years 

and only a little living. 

And you can live a lifetime

in mere months. 


makes the difference.
