    'Yesterday I saw my six year old niece for the first time in years. She sat on a car boot while I waved hi from the front of my house, unable to go and hold her to me tightly. We have only seen each other on screens for so long, and I bore the insult of having her so close, yet removed. In context, this seems like such an insignificant wound, but even the smallest needle can pierce the skin.' (Claire Albrecht : Editorial introduction)
