Katherine Anne Porter
“Don't you love being alive?" asked Miranda. "Don't you love weather and the colors at different times of the day, and all the sounds and noises like children screaming in the next lot, and automobile horns and little bands playing in the street and the smell of food cooking?"

"So do I," said Miranda, "we never did swim together.”
Katherine Anne Porter, Pale Horse, Pale Rider
