But now I saw that . . . she, and maybe every other person, was like row upon row of white rooms. You can go together through some of them, but they have no end, and you cannot accompany anyone through them all.
~Peter Høeg (Borderliners, p. 157 )
Novels and poetry are great art activators for me. Some lines are like start buttons: the images just start flowing, accompanied by a feeling so deep it is challenging to try and express why those words evoked that feeling. But when you read the words to another, and recognize their reaction, you have entered a white room together.
