“We're all of us, always on the edge of bereavement.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Gentling Box

“We want small things, tiny joys. The feeling that tomorrow is going to bring us bright colors, shiny tinsel--the delicious smell of cooking, a moment's adventure in a sideshow. We want hope. We want love. And Christ, it shouldn't be too much to ask for in this cockeyed world--and yet it is. Somehow, it is.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Gentling Box

“All the desolation in the world sweeps like a night wind howling through the vast emptiness that is our being.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Gentling Box
