Anything that dies must have had some kind of purpose in life, some kind of activity that has now worn itself out; but does that apply to Chuangmei? Am I to suppose, then, that she will always be sitting by the front door, dust gathering on her surface, getting under the feet of my colleagues’ children, and their children’s children? As far as one can see she does no harm to anyone; but the idea that she is likely to survive me I find almost painful.
