Excerpt from “A 38 Day Education.”

She looked back into my eyes, saw the pain I felt and it looked like she could feel it herself as she looked on the verge of tears. Our mutual look into each other’s eyes lingered and for that reason I felt myself more vulnerable than I had in many years. Steadying myself, I collected my emotions, offering my hand in friendship.  She graciously accepted  and leaned in to give me a gentle peck on the cheek.
