While you were gone,
the greys took over __________’s head,
little kids sprouted long limbs
and complicated faces.

Life went on
without your tending to it.

      I’ve read accounts of people who leave or change their vocation and are astonished to find the location went on without them. Their conclusion? They should have left sooner; they were only staying because they thought things would fall apart without them. So, yes, it can be “humbling and freeing”!
