After the phone call with his first ex-wife, Mark went into one of those deep funks which became more common as the years passed.

on and on in a constantly cycle although he really didn’t feel remorse. Maybe was supposed to feel remorse…..
Mark felt a scientist, who has tried various chemical compounds and considered what he ought have used or how much…
He left a few days pass, then emailed Leah, trying to ascertain if there was some conflict between her and their sons. She responded quickly and went into a long dissertation of all the encounters over the past forty years.

This shocked Mark.
