    Yes I love that part. And then when he refers to it later as that ancient spill of golden light.

    And since then that voice of disappointed expectation Ė that cheated child's voice that can never be satisfied with such a mild superlative as good - has fallen pretty much silent. And except for a few rumbles - like the sounds of those unseen creatures somewhere out in the foggy night - it has been pretty much silent ever since. Maybe you can tell me - why should the silencing of that childish, demanding voice seem so much like dying?

    -- Stephen King, Skeleton Crew, The Mist.

    Was reminded of these quotes today by my journal app. Here's a few reasons why Roadwork is one of my favorite King novels:

    ###

    So we move, and where are we? What are we? Just two strangers sitting in a house thatís sitting in the middle of a lot more strangersí houses. Thatís what we are. The March of Time, Freddy. Thatís what it is. Forty waiting for fifty waiting for sixty. Waiting for a nice hospital bed and a nice nurse to stick a nice catheter inside you. Freddy, forty is the end of being young. Well, actually thirtyís the end of being young, forty is where you stop fooling yourself. I donít want to grow old in a strange place.

    ###

    Mary came in and saw him looking at the TV, his empty scotch-rocks glass in his hand.
    "Your dinner's ready, Bart," she said. "You want it in here?

    He looked at her, wondering exactly when he had seen the dare-you grin on her lips for the last time...exactly when the little line between her eyes had begun to be there all the time, like a wrinkle, a scar, a tattoo proclaiming age.

    You wonder about some things, he thought, that you'd never in God's world want to know. Now why the hell is that?

    ###

    "What were you sbiling about in the living roob, Bart?" Mary asked. Her eyes were red from her cold, and her nose had a chapped, raw look.

    "I don't remember," he said, and for the moment he thought: Iíll just scream now, I think. For lost things. For your grin, Mary. Pardon me while I just throw back my head and scream for the grin that's never there on your face anymore. Okay?
