Jade Iceberg, Antarctica. When seawater at depths of more than 1,200 feet freezes to the underside of massive ice shelves, it forms ‘marine ice.’ Enormous hunks of ice break off from the ice shelf, creating icebergs. When one of these icebergs overturns, its jade underside is revealed. The wondrous color of this ‘marine ice’ results from organic matter dissolved in the seawater at those great depths. Green icebergs are infrequently seen because their verdant bellies are underwater; it’s only when they flip over, a rare event, that their richly colored regions can be seen before they melt.

“Archaeologists excavating a trash pit at the Jamestown colony site in Virginia have found the first physical evidence of cannibalism among the desperate population, corroborating written accounts left behind by witnesses. Cut marks on the skull and skeleton of a 14-year-old girl show that her flesh and brain were removed, presumably to be eaten by the starving colonists during the harsh winter of 1609.”
People hurt you when they have changed and you have changed and your lives no longer intersect at complementary angles. You are not guiltless, but you hardly carry all the blame. You can blame faded connections on bad timing, on misunderstandings, the list goes on and on. But places are different. Stagnant places hurt you with flash floods of memory; places that have changed too much hurt you all the same by reminding you how long you’ve been gone and how much time has passed.
