Salon Published an Essay of Mine
I have an essay up at Salon. It is about as personal an essay as I could write. To those friends of mine — particularly current classmates of mine — who learn about this for the first time by reading this, I regret that we didn’t have a conversation first.
Here is a taste:
“Shane and I developed a classic dependency: the perpetually-broken-and-in-need-of-fixing person finds and latches onto the perpetually-willing-to-fix-other-people person. These systems are always a bit of a façade, of course, which is to say that Shane was no less capable than I was, and I was no less broken than he was. But as flawed as our arrangement was, the roles we played genuinely reflected what we believed about ourselves.”
