Failed expectations. Did we fail to live up to our own expectations?
Or were our expectations doomed to fail before we ever got there?
I'm reminded by this desolate view of the six of us that hung out in high school. All six of us were married within the year following graduation. Five of us are still working that original field of diamonds. I wonder what made our little group so different from the average of forty to fifty percent US marriages which end in divorce?
Amongst the dehydrated crevices of a desert earth you will stumble upon your diamonds; in between the dry skulls and cracked bones." ~ C. JoyBell C.
