When I am unhappy, then it is only because I so rarely find people to be happy with. Happy? Well, not quite. Joyful. … It is the dilemma of my life that friends matter terrifically to me, that I like to like people, but find so many unlikeable. I was not raised by my parents so much as I was sharpened, schooled and burdened with a critical sense I can never turn off. I wear it like a pair of X-ray glasses or– do you know Anderson’s Snow Queen fairy tale? ––that snow child with the chip of glass in his heart, who sees the ugliness in everything?
