I read this and contemplate:
"Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who'd be kind to me. That's what people really want, if they're telling the truth."
Doris Lessing in The Golden Notebook (1919)
Just one person, she says, and yet, perhaps here, we find more than one. We find support as we share. It's like we add outriggers or pontoons to our canoe. We find balance and care.
