I've been spinning like a ball of twine across a polished floor, unwinding as I go. It's the reason Johnny left me, not that I can blame him. He woke this morning to find me still poring over the tarot cards, my brow furrowed, my right fingers drumming the small tabletop, and he said in a perfectly reasonable voice, "Mel? I'm going, Mel. I'm really sorry, but I can't take this anymore. I think you need some help, but I'm not the person to give it to you."
