"People keep asking, 'When will things feel normal again? When will we bounce back?' I’m no physicist, but it seems to me that bouncing back relies on certain predictable laws of motion. But nothing is predictable anymore. That means we’re not going to bounce back. We’re going to bounce forward or sideways or all over the place, and we’re going to have to figure out how to do it as we go.

I could be nuts, but this is what I’m telling myself: If whatever happened yesterday and the day before and the day before could happen, then whatever you and I can dream up for tomorrow could happen, too. Because if anything is possible . . . then anything is possible."

“I thought about the things we trade away to get what we want, what we need. How often women accept their situations out of fear of repercussions or even simply fear of being seen as ungrateful or greedy. It should not be so difficult to verbalize, ‘I’m going to do something different,’ or even, ‘I’m going to do something big.’ We have to be able to say these things out loud, put them on paper.”

Mermaids, Michelle Obama, and the book that changed one writer's life forever -- an essay in The Washington Post.

That's right. The armadillo.
