I did not cry when I heard the news. There was nothing more after Henri died. Another postcard handwritten with care. ‘Je t’apprends une mauvaise nouvelle’. This time it was Adele. They arrive from time to time, sad news from another life, another time, to pierce my new world. I close my eyes and dream of the fields where I planted and reaped friendships dear enough to be family as the old people return to the soil.
