    letter sent me a couple of years ago by a young reader, who wrote:
    The city of happiness, well, we all live there and people go about their business with full knowledge of the child in the closet.

    “Then where does it end?”

    “I don’t know. I don’t know yet.”

    Laia Asieo Odo
    To be whole is to be part;
    true voyage is return.
