The words in this book may be answers to questions you didn’t know to
ask, and perhaps some you did. They might pinpoint emotions and
experiences that seemed elusive or indescribable, or they may cause you
to remember a person you’d forgotten. If you take something away from
this book … let it be the realization or affirmation that you are human,
that you are fundamentally, intrinsically bound to every single person
on the planet with language and feelings.
