Letters 2, Day 5

Spent the day writing for Letters 2. An incredibly rich day. A friend loaned me a book last week and he read this paragraph aloud to me as he did so, and it's very deeply informed my writing today.

"I have come to believe that by and large the human family all has the same secrets, which are both very telling and very important to tell. They are telling in the sense that they tell what is perhaps the central paradox of our condition - that what we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we also fear more than anything else."

- Frederick Buechner (from the book Telling Secrets)
