William Paul Young

“You want to know why I live here, in this ‘hovel’; I think that
is the word you used, based on your civilized and educated
perception?”

“It was the best you could give me.” She didn’t turn from her
work.
“Excuse me? The best ‘I’ could give you? I had nothing to do
with this. I could build you something much better, but not this.

“It’s all right, Anthony! I have no expectations. I am grateful to
have found even this small place in your heart. I travel light”—
she smiled as if at some secret thought—“and I make my home
inside the simplest gifts. There is nothing to feel bad or ashamed
about. I am thoroughly grateful, and being here is a joy!”
“So… because this is me, my world somehow, I have only
made this small place for you?”
