It was there. It was in our hearts and lungs. The air and blood and the life, like in every living thing, we had it. But it slipped away, too fast for telling. Like everything that ever lived, it was there inside us. We felt it but there was nothing to hold to, no way to grab. And we lost it before we saw each others face. We heard for weeks and months the voices in our blood that spoke of things that were to be: cats, rabbits, birds, rocks, trees and sand. And everything the voices said about them. But the voices didn’t say what they would look like. You will know them when you see them, they said. You will know them when you smell them. Don’t worry about the shapes. You will know. And you will understand. Exactly what life was they did not explain.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
