There are really hard things in the world—dancing around us, dancing around inside of us. There’s the bad things and the good things. And then there are all the moments in between that are neither—but just as important. This book documents so little of it all—it’s fragments, pieces of so many stories. It’s the tiniest piece of sadness, the tiniest piece of joy, the tiniest piece of the tiniest moments. But words can do things—make us experience things, remember things. They make us celebrate, they lift us up, they hold us down, they can make us sit in the darkness till we understand more. They make us sit and wonder. That’s this book. The tiny things stacked up, on top of each other—creating something just big enough to make us feel it.
