My friend Betsy is visiting.

“Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of
feeling safe with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words, 
but pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together;
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, 
and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”

(Attributed to George Elliott)
