For Lisa and Travis, because it’s been two weeks since Euclid’s been gone. EUCLID! God I love that you gave her a mathematician’s name and she proceeded to live a life of superiority, exhausted by the simplicity of her peers and their silly catch-and-run-and-hide games, instead preferring to do contemplate matters of higher intellect, on the hammock, while sleeping. Euclid, obviously, knew her own mind and in her mind, yours was the only home that was good enough for her gifts. Of course you miss her. But if there’s anyone who understood time, which is every mathematician’s infinite obsession, it was your Euclid. Einstein believed that time is not absolute. Which means that for you and Euclid, the time you had together is essentially forever.
