Sunlight streamed in the kitchen window, promising a bright fall day. I sat down, reaching for a plate of toast and goat cheese. Tom’s eyes sparkled, as if he had some great secret. I thought we’d go out and spread your parents’ ashes. Get out of town for the day, take a ride. Nava’s lips turned down in a fine hard line. We haven’t ridden the whole perimeter since the quake.
