I don’t know what you’ll make of him, but I’d prefer for him to be under your care at Goldengrove. Apparently he’s an artist, a successful one—he got himself arrested last week, then brought to us. He doesn’t talk much and doesn’t like us much, here. ” “I’ve heard of him, but I don’t really know his work,” I admitted. “Landscapes and portraits—I think he was on the cover of ARTnews a couple of years ago. ” I turned to the window and stood, watching hail fall like expensive white gravel over the walled back lawn and a battered magnolia.
He was silent. I tried again. ” He looked down then and sighed as if it hurt him even to exhale. “No. You don’t understand. I wasn’t attacking her. ” “For someone else? ” I kept my gaze fixed on him. “Did you feel you were doing it for your wife? ” “You can talk with her,” he said, as if he didn’t care one way or the other. “You can even talk with Mary if you want. You can look at the pictures if you want. I don’t care. ” I asked. It was not his ex-wife’s name. I waited a little, but he was silent.

I waited a little, but he was silent. “Are the pictures you mentioned pictures of her? ” He stood in utter silence before me, gazing somewhere over my head. I waited; I can wait like a rock when I need to. ” I don’t often comment about myself, of course, and certainly not in an initial session, but I thought it was worth the small risk. He flashed me a look that could have been either interest or contempt, and then he lay down on the bed, stretched out full length on his back with his shoes on the bedspread and his arms behind his head, gazing upward as if at open sky.
