My brother Bryan was the most fearless person I knew; his fearlessness guided me through the Apocalypse, and it guided me through a half century of the Great Depression as well. This book is dedicated to him, and to my other guide, Cheryl.
First words
Each amber strand of hair on her arm reflects the sun. I close my eyes, and still I can trace the path of each hair—its arc, its hue, its airy weight. When I feel the gentle stir of ocean breeze, I know how each strand will shimmer, where it will lie, as if the breeze were as methodic as a woman making a bed. My love, I archive you with my eyes, that I may . . . that I may . . . that I may cherish each brushstroke in the moments that I must suffer your absence . . .
