My father and my brother would be home from Shul. There would be a call for the Havdalah candle, wine and spices, and the workweek would begin. But for the moment it was Shabbat--Shabbat peace, Shabbat stillness. I curled up next to my mother on the living room couch, and begged, "Tell me a story. Tell me about myself when I was little."

The husband stared in amazement when it was Robert’s turn, he "held the smoke, and then let it go. It was like he’d been doing it since he was nine years old.” Finally the wife goes upstairs, Robert turns on the television and a cathedral shows up on the screen. The husband "rises with the spirit of the blind man as, with eyes closed and pen on paper, he leads the blind man’s hand over what he imagines the contours of a cathedral would be.” When they are done Robert wants the husband to look, but he has his eyes closed because he "thought it was something [he] ought to do."
