    [the dearest of friends, once--and no longer.]

    As time passed, they eventually grew into the men they had to become. Old age came to them like a long-expected guest, and laughter left their company.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    [♥ The spirit of the film at its finest. The prickly relationship between Auda and Ali (and the Howeitat vs. Harith tension), TEL and the wild plans he dreams up, the creation of a myth and secrets written upon the earth--or so Ali dares to imagine as TEL does. & the ref to literary Arabic!]

    Now, Auda was praising his son, as though the boy had performed any great feat beyond being a light burden for the fleetest horse. "I say to you--" and here he indicated Ali and the Harith who enjoyed his hospitality "--I say that a camel may be the ship of the desert, but a good horse is the railcar! A camel rocks and sways over the dunes like a ship over the waves. Better to fly over the sands, and to travel so smoothly that you might be sitting in your tent!"

    The last fortnight by the sea, it seemed, had made Auda an expert on ships.

    Summary

    When Bucky was sufficiently recovered, he and Steve took a trip. They saw the baseball hall of fame. They saw a clear blue lake. They saw the countryside, with clumps of trees in many colors.
    (Something about this is a lie.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    [a;slfkajs;ldjfals!!!

    More coherently: The shining perfection of Steve; the fumbling existence of Bucky; the deliberate mystery of Junior; a series of awful events; awesomeness ad infinitum. My reaction: laughing like a loon. I have a strange sense of humor. But the story is also dark, and terrible, and more bitter than bittersweet.]

    "End of the line," said Steve playfully.
