The older Belle Creedy gets, the more she wonders about what happens. After.
In the mornings, when dawn's just a lick of peach in the eastern sky and she's so far into the world of her art she only knows the sun's coming up because the racket from the birds roosting in the thick pines around her house intrudes on her thoughts, she stops whatever she's working on and pads out onto the deck on the second story of her place. She watches ripples on the surface of the clear mountain lake just across the road take on the color of the pre-dawn sky, and she considers just how many coincidences go into making a world like this. Are they really coincidences after all? Or is there something more?
