This is one of my favorite quotes, and it just occurred to me to put it here:
“What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult to each other?”
— George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), Middlemarch
I’ve always loved this quote, and I try to keep it in the front of my mind and to allow it to guide the decisions I make. I’ve been an escort for a little over a year, and I’ve had this website and blog since March of 2012. Given the unique nature of the relationships I have with my clients, I’m surprised that it took me this long to realize how appropriate it is in this context.
