WORKING NOTES FROM LAURA MORIARTY:
Because the limiting of choices occurs naturally, it became appealing to operate willfully within these limits. Perhaps anyone's life revolves around certain phrases which, empty in themselves, have to do with whatever can exist. "To do" in the sense of making, allowing to be -- to allow the point around which everything turns to be revealed in all its plainness.
