*K. Lorraine Graham
The same things: leaving makes love easy—people, place. Emails with European evangelical Christians—don't finish your thought. I think I hate you one a week, once a month— you say it twice a year: "I hate you." "I'm through with you." Say we're through with not saying how much we hate. For example: Burning houses. Our expanding neighborhood. Our neighborhood sons. Dr. Phil says anger is "really only" a combination of three things: fear, hurt, and something I can't remember— don't finish my thought. No wonder we feel so awful.
