Quote of the day: … from Gerald Hannon’s personal essay, “Love For Sale.”
I am in awe before the extent, the power, the range of human need. Need is a seething presence beneath the polite fictions of our everyday lives. If need were a force field, the city would glow at night. You could hover above it and see the lines of light reaching out and crossing and missing and connecting, everyone pretending there is no light at all, everyone making their dinners, reading their books, watching their televisions. But I see it.
