It means that most of the time I am eager, longing for the possibility of telling you. That these possibilities seem frightening, but not destructive, to me. That I feel strong enough to hear your tentative and groping words. That we both know we are trying, all the time, to extend the possibilites of truth between us. — Adrienne Rich, from On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978.
