Thought for the Day

My continuing passion is to part a curtain,
that invisible shadow that falls between people—
the veil of indifference to each other's presence,
each other's wonder, each other's human plight.
~ Eudora Welty, Novelist, Short Story Writer

What an essential statement: "to part a curtain - the veil of indifference to each other's presence." That's it.
