Some of Bay's fondest memories were of lying under the apple tree in the summer while Claire gardened and the apple tree tosses apples at her like a dog trying to coax its owner into playing catch. But as fall approached, the tree would lose its leaves overnight, and then it could do nothing but shake its bare branches miserably until the first frost of the season startled it back awake. The entire family felt its frustration.

"After my experiences with Mr. Lefroy and Mr. Blackwell I feel I could write a thesis on the topic. And as I said over Katharine's crib, the heart and head must both be consulted in the decision, but something also must be said for the initial attraction at the sight of a possible mate. There should be a sparkle in the eye that is only for her, a keen interest in having him forever near. I enjoy his company, and he enjoys mine, but should love not be more than that? I believe so."
"So Mr. Bigg-Withers' eyes were not sparkling?" Cassandra asked with a raised eyebrow.
"If they were, it was from drink and not me," Jane replied. "And before you ask, I did not glimmer once in reply."

"I wouldn't even consider it if I were you. But then if I were you, I would not be me, and if I were not me, I would not be able to advise you, and if I were unable to advise you, you'd do as you like, so you might as well do as you like and have done with it."

I'm going to be hit by a car in about four hours, but I don't know that yet.
The weird thing is, it's not the car that's going to kill me, that's going to erase me from the world.
It's something totally different. Something that happens eight days from now and threatens to end everything.

It's hard enough when a relationship ends. But when a relationship with an artist goes bad, it goes spectacularly bad.
