Halo & Epiphany

“For four years, Michelle and Colleen and I didn’t see each other much. But I could see that over at Sacred Heart, something was happening to Michelle. She was becoming very, very beautiful, except for her face, and she had the biggest hair I had ever seen. She carried her head very carefully because of it, as though it were a nest full of blown-hollow Easter eggs. She looked almost exactly like a model, and her father was very proud of her and was always telling her to try modelling before she went on to university.”
