My god this quote is such a revelation to me. It really does explain, in one short sentence, so much about the women I have known and loved over the decades. Nothing stays remote, by itself. Ideas, places, things, events, all connect back or forward into a person or people. Maybe not a real person, maybe just an ideal or an anti-ideal, but a person nonetheless.
I know, not ALL women are like that. I know that just the same as I know all men aren’t one way. But it does seem to be a dominant way of looking at the world for women. What do you think, is it accurate from your experience?
