Yet another quote from the Greek god Hermes:
Adam ... takes the plates she is carrying ... and sets them on the draining board beside the stack of their fellows he already placed there. Dishes, sink, the sunlight in the widow - how precious suddenly they seem, these perfectly commonplace things.
Now that quote could be understood in 2 ways; a.) I see things like a Greek god, or, b.) a Greek god must really like my pictures of my kitchen sink.
In either case, I like it. Although, I do prefer option a.).
