I leave my husband on the back porch of the house, the old family homestead buried in layers of paint and secrets. He’s there to help his sister. Her husband has left her for a woman named Charity. And I am driving to the city to sit in the dark and watch Leonardo di Caprio, in old-age makeup, nose into private lives. Life is hard, I think to myself, and drive further into the darkness, the headlights only going so far.
