The Love That Dare Not Speak…

There’s no good reason for not watching this amazing film until now, but I just saw ‘Carol’ and you should stop what you’re doing and watch it too. Well, hold that thought. It’s actually got a big holiday background to it, so wait a month or two, but definitely queue it up. Two of my favorite performers – Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara – give nuanced, subtle, and mesmerizing performances as two women caught up in a love affair that was not possible in its time. Definitely food for thought on this National Coming Out Day.

Dearest. There are no accidents and he would have found us one way or another. Everything comes full circle. Be grateful it was sooner rather than later. You’ll think it harsh of me to say so, but no explanation I offer will satisfy you. Please don’t be angry when I tell you that you seek resolutions and explanations because you’re young. But you will understand this one day. And when it happens, I want you to imagine me there to greet you, our lives stretched out ahead of us, a perpetual sunrise. But until then, there must be no contact between us. I have much to do, and you, my darling, even more. Please believe that I would do anything to see you happy. So, I do the only thing I can… I release you. ~ Carol
