Myerhoff Speaking with a Member of the Israel Levin Senior Center

"When I walk into their houses I pass over those lines which might ordinarily separate us, culture, history, affinity, class, age, language, need, expectation, into another realm where we are in intimate relationship with each other, nothing withheld, nothing making us strangers."

Notes:

1. Quoted in Deena Metzger, "Forward: Barbara Myerhoff Storyteller," Unpublished essay.
