      An author writes what he knows. And Salesses does it well.

        Captivating IS the word for this piece. I love how bits of important information are just casually dropped in as he proceeds. What he says about art rings so true to me. How he captures the reality of grief. How after his daughter was born, he realized how unloved he was. WOW!!! This deserves a reread!!

        1. Update (12/19/2021):

          Two quotes: “One’s sense of reality consists of what makes one real to oneself.”

          “Art is a model for how to find joy in a constantly moving and changing world.”
