She looks at me and opens her mouth, probably to lie again. But then she changes her mind. "I didn't know what to say." Her voice catches, so I know she's telling the truth.

Perhaps there even comes a time when it's no longer too late for anything. Perhaps, even, most times are too early for most things, and most of life has to go by before it's time for almost anything and too late for almost nothing. Nothing to lose, the present moment to gain, the integration with long-delayed Now."
Author: Russell Hoban
