I fall into the trap of numbers
Length of visit
These are all things that meant something different half my lifetime ago
Now, they undermine my confidence when they are low
Boost my self-esteem when they are high
These raw numbers that mean nothing alone
Everything in context

Statistical analysis helped us uncover what to try next
It did not mean success or failure
Where has the tolerance for trialing gone?
We have stepped into quicksand
Numbers are sometimes only the middle of the narrative.
