For Kalafudra.

Intuition is not a concrete thing, but the sum of a lifetime’s worth of
knowledge divided by triumph, multiplied by fear and taken to the power
of a thousand minor failures, of opportunities missed and dreams
unrealized. Add to this the weight of connections never made, hundreds
of perceptions unrelated to observations long-ago forgotten and
dismissed, and factor in that indefinable something that made you think,
once, that you really/ could /do anything. This is how the totality of
human experience at that cosmic craps game that is life steps up to the
table, runs a few quick calculations, and tells you that your luck has
run out and you’re due to roll snake-eyes right about/ now.

This is that feeling, the kind that sends you running with your
youngest from doctor to doctor until you find the one who believes you
when you say there’s something wrong with your baby, makes you beg your
husband to cancel his 8 am flight even though he laughs and calls you
superstitious; this is the feeling of wrongness that makes you hire a
private detective to watch your husband in his off-hours. This is the
kind of sudden gut-wrenching/
my-brother-is-dying-my-brother-needs-a-doctor /panic that can wake you
from a sound sleep even at 3 o’clock in the morning.

    It’s a nice quote, though my reaction to it is probably not as strong as yours… :)

    De gustibus … etc.

    I just wanted to post this in support of my treassure-hunting point.
    Also, just to make sure there’s no misunderstandings here – until the next paragraph of the story, I had no idea who that person was or who she was talking about. She’s an original character, which is always a dicey thing.
