Sunday – EG

“Forty-five percent of American marriages end in divorce,” Bernie says. “And forty percent of all first marriages.” I don’t know what all that means. All I know is that Bernie’s divorced, and we miss Charlie – that’s Bernie’s kid – a lot. On the other hand, as humans like to say, weddings are fun. I caught the bouquet! That was the last wedding I went to. There was something about me not going to any more.

Tomorrow – back to Greed, the loose ends.

It felt like rain for a while yesterday. Felt and smelled. The smell of rain about to fall: love it. But no rain came. It hardly ever rains here in the Valley, except when the monsoons come. When that happens I head right outside and race around at my craziest. Sometimes Bernie comes out, too. He doesn’t race around – running’s not the easiest thing for Bernie, on account of his wound – but just stands there, face turned up to the sky, getting soaked. His face looks so young then, and so much like Charlie’s. Charlie is Bernie’s kid, did I mention that? And the divorce? Leda, all that? Maybe I should go over that again. But I kind of wanted to go into Bernie’s worries about water, and something called the aquifer, and how I once tried to find it. All of a sudden I’m a little tired. Maybe time for a brief lie-down.
