Sunday Sentence: Don’t Let Me Be Lonely by Claudia Rankine

“Maybe hope is the same as breath – part of what it means to be human and alive.” Claudia Rankine, Don’t Let Me Be Lonely

I’ve been reading this book slowly for a long time. It is meant to be absorbed word by word, image by image. Today, this is the sentence that claimed my attention and my heart.

I love reading them, so now I’m joining the #SundaySentence party started by David Abrams over at the Quivering Pen and on Twitter. It’s not a review. It’s not a story. It’s just one sentence I read this week, presented “out of context and without commentary.
