The hardness of this heart makes it very easy for me, by sheer dramatic contrast, to feel the softness of my own. This is a visually gorgeous sculpture that offers up a thrilling metaphor as well: hearts of stone keep us isolated and oblige us to strain and reach to maintain contact with one another. And this, too: despite the solidity of the heart and its ability to separate us, we still do manage, however tenuously, to touch. How apt that both people are asleep.

Thanks again, Beatrice. Your aim is true.
