I met H. yesterday. She is very much as I imagined her–sweet, smart, unfailingly polite. Curious. Kind. Sensitive, but also sensible. Perceptive. Unpretentious. Chatty. Oh, and extremely good company.
What I like most about her blog is how unselfconsciously compassionate it is. I don’t mean compassionate in that awful save-the-children sense. I mean the compassion that comes from quietly noticing the details that make us most human.
I told her this last night, or at least I tried to. I hope she understood.
