“To this day, I have to fight against a carefulness inside myself, a scrupulous attention to emotional detail. Underneath any warmth and spontaneity I feel is a nearly impenetrable layer of watchful reserve. Past my wholehearted love of life, family, and friends is a part of my heart that I still struggle to unlock. And sometimes in the mirror, peeping out of my comfortable, middle-aged face, I still meet the wary eyes of that changeling child.”  – Clare B. Dunkle, in Hope and Other Luxuries
