Salon.com asked to republish this piece called “The Lifted Corner”. It’s considered an essay, but an essay has a different feel to it than this, in my opinion. Many of you have already read it, and while it is, on one level, about miscarriage, it is really about the quiet inside of a compatible marriage. I know that all sorts of things can break up marriages. But when a relationship is working, it seems like it can not only withstand setbacks, but can be strengthened by them, corny though that sounds.
I am so happy that Salon asked to republish the piece so that it has an extended life.
