from the last of her kind (sigrid nunez)

“Though she did not treat her parents unkindly, she wasted little time or emotion on them. “If I had more than one life,” she told them near the end, “I would have devoted one of them to you. But I had only one life.” And she seemed to have known that it would not be long.”
