“It was when I discovered that there are two kinds of death. There is ceasing to exist, usually accompanied by a funeral and loved ones in mourning. And then there is emotional death born out of necessity and measured solely by the absence of grief it causes: the turning off the lights of oneself in order to shut down the feelings of being alive.”
Kerry Kletter, The First Time She Drowned

“That's the weirdest thing about being cut off from life. Everything gets washed out or muted or recedes into the background except for other people's laughter. Other people's laughter gets very loud and jarring. It penetrates. It is a reminder that other people live.”
Kerry Kletter, The First Time She Drowned

“I wonder if this is what other people seem to have that I do not—this courage to fall because they have the memory of standing.”
Kerry Kletter
