They say there are many worlds. All around our own, packed tight as the cells of your heart. Each with its own logic, its own physics, moons, and stars. We cannot go there – we would not survive in most. But there are some, as I have seen, almost exactly like our own – like the fairy worlds my aunt used to tease us with. You make a wish and another word is formed in which that wish comes true, though you may never see it. And in those other worlds, the places you love are there, the people you love are there. Perhaps in one of them, all rights are wronged and life is as you wish it. So what if you found the door? And what if you had the key? Because everyone knows this: That the impossible happens once to each of us. – The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells, Andrew Sean Greer
