Catherine Lacey Quote

by Nicole Trilivas

“If I could somehow disappear for a while without making any loved ones anxious, I would. Even for only a few months — which is something I’ve actually approximated several times over the years in New Zealand, Japan, Europe, and Central America. (Though everyone has always known where I was going, dampening the thrill.) While gone I’ve tended to eschew calls home or internet or even speaking to locals when I can help it. Instead, I relish the temporary permission to vanish.”
