"As far back as I remember, to want .... was to want relations.... That has always been important for me, not necessarily in the form of a couple but as a matter of existence: how is it possible.. to be together? To live together, to share their time, their meals, their room, their leisure, their grief, their knowledge. their confidences? What is it to be “naked”..., outside of institutional relations, family, profession, and obligatory camaraderie? It’s a desire, an uneasiness, a desire-in-uneasiness that exists among a lot of people."
