Beautiful writing from William Goyen Interview:
It brought my life back to me. I saw my relationships; it was extraordinary. Lost times come for us in our lives if we’re not phony and if we just listen; it hurts, but it’s also very joyous and beautiful . . . it’s a redemption . . . it’s all those things that we try to find and the world seems to be looking for . . . as a matter of fact, that’s the hunger of the world. So there it was on the ship and it just came to me. I saw so much . . . that I wouldn’t have to go home and they wouldn’t have to suffocate me; they wouldn’t kill me; I’d find other relationships.
