“Though weeks, even months, have at times gone by without contact, when we were separated by distance and occupied with busy lives and raising families, the thread of connection had continued true and deep, allowing us to pick up where we left off, as if there had been no time lost. Time had never been a part of the equation.”
Sue Henry, The Serpents Trail

“Things happen and you change directions,”
Sue Henry, The Tooth of Time

“There is nothing you can imagine that is quite as soulful as the eyes of a mini-dachshund staring up at the popcorn bowl to inspire an unendurable case of guilt.”
Sue Henry, The Serpents Trail
