Tooth Two


I’ve never felt the passage of time the way I do now… and it’s not simply speeding up: Time is up to something. It’s become duplicitous and deceptive, tricking me so that one moment I’m fooled into believing my life with Finn has somehow always existed, and time just IS as it has been and always will be, and then suddenly I realize that this NOW has slipped away and time is moving so swiftly that if I’m not conscious of the passage of every single second, something will change and I’ll miss it.

Today, when Finn joined me for lunch as usual, I spotted a second tooth on his lower gumline, budding just to the left of his first.

Did I catch it at its first peek, or did I miss it?
