True Love,

Neither Tarnished nor Afraid

"She was the beat of my heart for thirty years. She was the music heard faintly around the edge of the sound. It was my great and now useless regret that I never wrote anything really worth her attention, no book I could dedicate to her. I planned it. I thought of it, but I never wrote it. Perhaps I couldn't have written it."

-- Raymond Chandler, from a letter describing his relationship with Cissy,
who had recently passed away.
