There is always an order to the courses. One- An outside world that holds beauty and harm. Two- A mother and her three children. Three – lessons taught, lessons remembered. There is an order to the courses, an order to the place setting, an order to life, and how much of it you can live. Order protects us– it must. But memory refuses to serve.
