It is a sunny summer time Sunday in a distant Swiss village, and a christening is being celebrated at a stunning outdated farmhouse. one of many site visitors notes an anomaly within the textile of the venerable edifice: a blackened put up that has been conscientiously outfitted right into a trim new window body.

I draw a big X over: 2. Nadia. And I press a little too hard, so the pen pokes through the paper. Now there’s a little black dot in my middle of my starburst. I lick my finger to wash the mistake away. But I change my mind. Instead, I add: 1. Another dot. 2. A curved line. Now there’s a little happy face on my knee. It doesn’t make me: 1. Smile. 2. Laugh. 3. Feel any better. But Cicely might like it. That’s enough.
