"He's heard it said that a man can't choose his family, but that's what he did. He chose Einar Gilkyson, and Griffin and Ella, and this woman too. it doesn't matter that he hasn't seen her for ten years and he knows he'll choose the slight girl he met just this morning. Not because she's Griffin and Jean's, but because he liked what he saw. It's the way he's always made his choice of family."
"When I was Susan, I used to be a librarian. Susan had a very rich internal life. Starla lives it."~Starla (née Susan)
