Cut in two

Grisha and my parents had begun the slow process of ossafication that befalls all émigrés: a kind of freezing-up of their real identity into something that makes sense in their new context, but is a 
semi-conscious denial of who they really are - or whould have been, had emigration not cut their lives in two.
