I can only guess at the other parts. But I’ve been guessing at them for half my life now, and I think I’ve made some sense of it. Honestly I don’t know what will come of this—who will find pain in what I say and who, in a certain manner, solace. It isn’t only that Senator Henry Bonwiller is dead. His death was melancholy news up here, of course, but it’s not the only reason I’ve set out to tell this. The other part is my children. That’s something I’m certain of.

Two of their spent lime and granite quarries had been converted into lakes, which they stocked with trout. Port Carrol was half an hour away, but if you grew up in Saline you learned to fish and row and maybe drive an outboard on the old Metarey Lime Quarry #3, and you learned to dive off the high rocks at Granite Mine #1.

It wasn’t their color so much as their mood and the fact that their soulful look contrasted so strikingly with the martial cast of the cheeks and nose.
