It was a quiet little comment at the end of a night of celebration, offered just as he was heading out.
You know Cathy, he said, looking me in the eye, looking in that way that reaches all the way through. It’s just not possible to outgive.
I heard him clearly as he spoke right to me, heard him so well the comment took up residence right here, right in my heart.
It’s just not possible to outgive.
