THE MISSING SOCK

The missing sock perplexed me. We bought a pair of pink socks for our baby's christening and now one was missing after its initial wash.

Was it wedged between the washing machine or eaten by the cat? A careful examination of both ruled them out. The scratched hand didn't help. I waved the orphaned sock angrily at the cat.

"Hurry up, honey!" My husband called. "We're going to be late. I have baby's left sock. Did you find the other?"

THE GRAVITY OF LOSS

It was sheer luck that you took flight 250 and I, flight 851. How grateful I am that we made up before we parted, as I now sob uncontrollably, watching your plane engines sputter and fail, free-falling.

the age-old battle
between force and gravity
the gravity of loss
