Two men who had loved me, and I them, said interesting things to me, things that haunt me past their life spans. How lucky are we that have experienced raw, passionate, respectful, and honest love. These men cannot interact directly with me now, we will take this up again when I too cross the river.
Of the academy, success, and scholarly achievement: “It isn’t what you think it is.”
I’ve always wondered how another person really knows what you think things are, but no matter, it was sincere and honest feedback about what he saw in me, coming from the heart. His life was spent as a respected scholar, so he knew a few things about the academy. So precious.
Of the universe in general: “I hope you never find out.”
My love, I’ve always known, I have grieved, but I have not despaired.
