Although it was true that no Brindle brave enough to move out had ever lived past the age of 30, it was also true that Brindles in general died young. But the myth of the house curse at least offered hope through a simple remedy — stay put and live. So Samson knew the house would outlive him, as it had so many previous Brindle men, and that it was protective of its legend and acquired rights. Every day, the Brindle estate grew more permanent, became more of a last, best example of a lost kind, all in opposite and cruel proportion to Samson's increasing irrelevance and anonymity in the world.
A Quilted Heart — 53 MarsK Cole's Diary September 6, 1970. Brindie House, Magog. Sylvain's ghost is getting bolder. He's starting to pop up in the daytime now. From behind doors, under the table at breakfast. Like a little kid. He thinks he's being funny, but it scares the hell out of me. Still, he's looking a little better, a few months less dead. Yesterday the ghost asked to read what I was writing, but I was firm. He said he wanted to see what lies Samson was telling, so I told him to just sit in and listen if he's so interested.
On days like this I miss the clinic, the filtered air. Referrals, receipts, aspirins, kindness. Samson charmed me, and I have always wanted to be a writer, even an invisible one. I'm the paid ghost in this house. Samson loves me, I feel it, he's only unkind because he can't remember how else to talk. And he's lived an extraordinary life — the parts I've paid attention to, at least. Must remember to nod more when he's talking. There is death in this house, and I don't mean just my ambition. You can smell it.
