“Was it hard to watch people go?

“Running cured almost anything. It eased pain; it exhilarated; it served as penance and validation. It turned lone wolf into a compliment. Running was objective – the stop-watch never lied. Races judged competitors on how long and hard they could run fast, not on a coach’s decision to play favorites with the starting lineup. Running was pure.”
Meg Gardiner, Ransom River

“I've been an investigator longer than you've been playing Vulcan Mind Meld with dead people - Tang”
Meg Gardiner, The Dirty Secrets Club
