Two days ago, due to a convergence of several complex factors that had slowly multiplied or escalated over time, a critical moment was reached as Herself attempted to assimilate new information, procedures and goals into her regular mental processes.
She failed. It was too much to ask of her. It could not be done.
She was broken.
Two days later, like the Phoenix, she emerges from the ashes. She is bloodied but unbowed. She can take on this challenge, and will not let it beat her again. She will be stronger now.
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.
- Ernest Hemingway
