you you're rearrange them to make them touch but assuming the ends are fixed the ends where the beams touch the only way to do this is to break one or both of the beams and rearrange the pieces next to each other the beams represent who we are not just what we were lunch or our hopes and dreams hu we are our course alike the beams represents time i met my eye when i was nineteen years old in college i married him when i was twenty two though my gut felt uneasy something's things are indicated who we were as people i d love him profusely he was and is a wonder person and when the friendliest kind souls i've ever known ass time went on that gut feeling got stronger as a true but father along my beam i felt unease every and we made a decision that reflect the path i wanted to take with my life try am i to align my core self with his while ever more frantically attempting to practice gratitude for all the things i can complain about the beam
