“Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either.
“The sound of a distant ocean covers me with surf, that tide that bears me back into the past, back to the place.People come through the whiteness, through the bright light, but all of them are ghosts.” — from the novel SINFUL FOLK
