Thank you for your comments as you read. I appreciate them, and their being sent, much. A very great deal of She and I takes place in negative space – also in grey space. I’m following the dictum of giving the reader data to an extreme without a potted conclusion. I very often thought of Newton’s “I do not make hypotheses” as I wrote. There were specific reasons for doing so, which may be clear by the end.
