The Unbearable Lightness of Being (an excerpt)

“Tomas came to this conclusion: making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep.”

And I, the reader, am reminded of the graceful tenderness of our legs entwined as we slept, like two aspens tangled at the root; how when we awoke, the sight of you was often enough to make my day whole.
