This is my family. Leonard, I am so sorry. This is my fault. I should have called you. Honey, I should’ve taken you out to lunch and we should’ve talked. But I didn’t do that. And I’m sorry about the Mort and the Maura and the he and the she. I’m just a person. And you’re just a person. And here we are. And baby, you need to get in this whirlpool, or you need to get out of it.
You can try to escape the story of your life, but you can’t. It happened. The baby died; the dog died; the heart broke. I knew you when you were young—I know your heart broke, too. I will know you when we are both old and maybe wise. I hope wise. I know you now, your story. Mine isn’t the one I would’ve chosen in the beginning, but I’ll take it. It is my story. It’s only mine. And it’s not over. There’s time. There is time. There’s so much time.
