    Summary

    “José Capablanca was a prodigy and lived his life handed to him on a silver platter, eschewed books and formal study for food and women and booze. They say the coroner put his ego as the cause of death. Alekhine played obsessively for years and years, became World Champion and then the alcoholic that showed up to every game drunk. His dead body was found hunched over a chess board. At least Beth isn’t like them.”

    “Harry?”

    “Yeah?”

    “Shut up.”

    Summary

    And maybe family isn’t forever either, perhaps you can’t put a temporal dimension to it, can’t measure it by a chess clock or even a calendar year. But maybe not being alone isn’t a permanent state either. Perhaps there are people that come into your life when you need it, and are there when you need it.
