"Why is it that when we get older, we get more fearful?"
“I’ve made mistakes, and I know why I made them, but I made that choice. Nobody’s ever made a choice for me. “
"I’m one of those people who
used to be really worried
about what everybody thought,
and once I started getting my
feelings hurt a lot I said, “You
know what? I’ve got to get over it.”
So I just isolated myself from it.”
"Sometimes I feel like there’s a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean. The moon tonight, there’s a circle around it. Sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing… I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don’t know. Maybe I had my happiness. I don’t want to believe it but, there is no man, Gilly. Only that moon."

"I’d like to keep feeling comfortable
with my freedom, to take it and
not apologize for it. It’s a hard thing
to own. I relinquish it a lot.
And that’s my fault.”
“It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives. He’s perfect, I can’t even describe him in any other way.”
