A few fall on the floor, and you seemingly lose them forever at that point. A few feel absolutely impossible to find. But sometimes, a piece just fits. You don’t have to rotate it around. You don’t have to force it into the space. It just falls into place seamlessly. Sometimes, relationships are like that too.
