  • Epigraph:

    'I'm Nobody! Who are you? Are you - Nobody - too?' - Emily Dickinson, Poem 260

    'Identity would seem to be the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self: in which case, it is best that the garment be loose, a little like the robes of the desert, through which one's nakedness can always be felt, and, sometimes, discerned. This trust in one's nakedness is all that gives one the power to change one's robes.' - James Baldwin
