Some days I feel like I’ve been deconstructed one too many times. I don’t think that’s really the truth, but it feels good to say, as if I could sum up my inner life in a sound bite that could simultaneously win sympathy from friends and strangers and even influence the current of the times. But I am not really deconstructed at all.
