Though I’ve tried (well, kinda) to keep them off this site, my political leanings are probably pretty obvious. Still, I’ve managed to keep my [social media] mouth shut for several long months of a Presidential campaign. And, reader, it’s killing me.

[Read on at your own peril. And I hope we can still be friends.]

Debra Pickett shared a quote
Wow.
Less by Andrew Sean Greer
“She told me she met the love of her life,” Zohra says at last, still staring out the window. “You read poems about it, you hear stories about it, you hear Sicilians talk about being struck by lightning. We know there’s no love of your life. Love isn’t terrifying like that. It’s walking the fucking dog so the other one can sleep in, it’s doing taxes, it’s cleaning the bathroom without hard feelings. It’s having an ally in life. It’s not fire, it’s not lightning. It’s what she always had with me. Isn’t it? But what if she’s right, Arthur? What if the Sicilians are right? That it’s this earth-shattering thing she felt? Something I’ve never felt. Have you?”
