  8. #20
    “I had noticed before that to sleep, actually sleep with someone did give this sense of intimacy, as though your dreams had flowed out of you to mingle with theirs and fold you both in a blanket of unconscious knowing.

If the trust was mutual, simple sleep could bring you closer together than the joining of bodies.”
