But all our secrets are the same

“There is something unbearably poignant about the human desire to know and be known, eternally at odds with the need for privacy and self-protection. We each are separated from one another by the things we keep secret or are unable to express; that distance, no matter how slender, imparts a loneliness to our existence that we can never quite overcome.” – Averil Dean, The Undoing

    I believe today is Averil’s birthday, if I remember correctly. Happy Birthday to Averil!

      Thank you, Pamela. Happy Birthday to Averil, though she and I have fallen out of touch.
