“. . .There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. . . Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless.”
Sara Zarr, Sweethearts

“Your greatest creation is your creative life. It's all in your hands.”
Sara Zarr

“When the remembering was done, the forgetting could begin.”
Sara Zarr
