“If you could somehow live off light, cut it up on your plate and put a fork it in, that’s what I would want to do, I think. Not because it would taste good or be filling, but because a little girl, watching her father do that, she wouldn’t say anything, would just watch, her eyes wide with wonder, and she would never forget for however long she’d live. Which would maybe be forever.”
