Lightly Child, Lightly.


I need to get at the truth of a thing and dig and dig until it is dragged painfully to light – another doglike quality.

— Rachel Cusk, Second Place: A Novel (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, May 4, 2021)

  11. This is exactly what my husband says of me. I need to get to the core of emotions, events, responses, etc., and I will dig till I hit a nerve in myself or others. I am never sorry to not find a bottom because there is always a place to dig and dig more. Glad I went a little farther to this post.
