She turned the thought over and over in her mind, imagining the lights as best she could until she had to ask her sisters for help again. ‘What about the carnival? Are the lights on the rides? What are the rides?’ she asked one of the oldest, who just turned away – that sister rarely spoke any more” Celia is a harborer of memories.
