These things seen

After an incredibly emotional week following the candid column about her brother’s death, Andrea needed a bit of relief — and she felt her readers did, too. She found it near a small pond in Middlefield, Ohio:
Last Sunday, I saw boys in Middlefield skating on a pond.
At once, the world resurfaced.
The breath I drew was suddenly deep and familiar.
At last, I could remember that color is simply sleeping,
beneath our skating feet, dreaming of spring.
The incredible response from all of you to my loss of my
brother is something that I will never forget.
