What can happen in a second?
A heartbeat, a breath, a spoken word, a sung note, a number changing on a microwave. Put them all together and they add. 60 and you've got a minute, 180 and you have the length of the average song and the time it takes to make popcorn.
A houseplant is dying. Tell it why it needs to live
Don't go! You bring color to this drab place where there's so little life. You're beautiful and leafy and green, a real kind of green. What would this place be without you? We'll take better care of you from now on. We'll water you and I'll buy plant food full of nitrogen and potassium. Wouldn't that be yummy? We'll even enjoy you more, show you to our friends when they come over. I'll get you a bigger pot. If you die, I can't get you back. Please stay.

1. Happy 2017 everyone!
2. Watching the state of the union address. Well done, Madame President.
3. I love my job but I still love weekends more. Now for some wine to kick off the weekend with!
4. My thirties are so much kinder to me than my twenties were. I'd never go back to them.
