If my eyes don’t deceive me, I believe that our pair of pixies are hovering above Rufus and Twila. And the latter has at last awoken; I had been so fearful that she wouldn’t. Those two things alone I find reassuring, as is the peaceful loveliness of the entire scene. Yes, turmoil has followed all-too-brief interludes of tranquility more than once, and it will probably happen yet again. But in the meantime, rest; Rufus has more than earned it.
