#111 - autumn, endings, vain, sour, green, arch

Autumn ends with a sight more brilliance than it began. In the same arching, expectant breath that heralds the birth of the Pontmercys’ first child, dusty brown autumn is over and the diamond clarity of winter has begun. Cosette beams tiredly down at the squalling, sour-faced child, in whose wrinkled red face only sharp green eyes allow for a sense of humanity, and Marius feels a pang of doubt, and a thought that he tries in vain to quench: This is not the beginning of their life as a family; this is the end of their life as a couple.
