I sound unnatural and false, like someone who is unsure to whom they are speaking and doesn’t know how they should be addressed. I have the embarrassment of talking to myself lest I am not really talking to myself, lest I am heard. Sorry. I cannot make my sentences work. They tail off. This is a dry run. A premonition of what it will sound like when my main hearer is gone. I have lost the second consciousness that powers mine. Lost my sounding board, my echo, my check, my stop and finisher. I am down to one.

We are creatures of context. We can only see as far as we can see. I can only think in the way that I can think. The sky only appears blue. Beyond our view we know that it will edge from blue to dark, from dark to black, away from the atmosphere and hard pull of the earth. There is something here I did not know before. I thought that there were limits to the absorption of pain. I thought that it was finite. I thought that it would stop.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
“If he loved you guys, he wouldn’t hurt you.” He made it sound so simple, as if it were a mathematical equation. But the connection between pain and love wasn’t linear. It was a web.”
Kristin Hannah
