I know you and I know how I feel when I’m with you, but you don’t always know that. I understand you and your actions, but you don’t understand that....more

Spilled Milk, Broken Vases, and Misplaced Treasures “Conclusion”

February 6, 2058, Adler and Dulcenia Havnejgerde talked long into the night. Together the old couple lay holding hands—shoulder to shoulder, feet touching and toes wiggling—in their huge four-poster, king-size canopy bed. Both so frail and thin that they just about disappeared from within the thick comforter and many pillows. And with only the light of the moon shining through their great window, they talked about the day’s celebration, as they listened to the drifting, fading sounds closing the day....more
