For Kate — Kurt Schwitters
My grandmother died in 1991 and I was born in ‘86. We only met once, but I didn’t speak English and she didn’t speak Spanish - so we had a communication problem.

An honorable human relationship — that is, one in which two people have the right to use the word “love” — is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell each other.
It is important to do this because it breaks down human self-delusion and isolation.
