Our confusion, uncertainty, self-doubt as well as our loves and hates are human responses we all relate to. The more truthfully and clearly we represent even the negative attitudes, the more the rest of us will gain from those creative struggles. The best of one’s private world, expressed eloquently, can heal wounds and provide people a sense of solidarity with others whom one does not know but shares pain and pleasure with. The work serves as a bridge which crosses time, cultures, languages and class barriers and which overcomes existential loneliness.
