I was playing around
with some photo software
and “accidentally” created this collage
(for the record, I actually believe
there are no accidents).

The software selected dozens of pictures
I’ve taken since 2006 –
little bits of everyday beauty –
and put a very poignant one
front and center:
a rearview mirror.

It took my breath away,
reminding me how far I’ve come
and how beautiful the days have been.
That can’t possibly be an accident.
