Mary: God did.
Jay: Maybe God did.
Mary: We're supposed to come away from ourselves, Jay. That's the whole point. We're supposed to come away to--
Jay: I know. To God.
Mary: I don't see how you can feel the way you do and not believe in Him.
Jay: We come from people, Mary, and in time they fall away from us, like Great-Granmaw. We give birth to others, and in time they grow away from us, like Ivan will. When we’re about eighty years old, you’n me, all we’ll have left is us. And that’s what I believe in. Maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s where we’re heading – to each other. And the sad thing all our lives is the distance between us. But maybe if we keep goin' in the direction we think is right, maybe we can't ever get all the way there, but at least we can make the distance less'n it was.
