His attitude is confidence and his demeanor radiant joy, yet beneath it all, buried below impervious self-esteem and subcutaneous beauty, a profound loneliness manifests without fanfare or pomp but with transient circumstance. There are the values he obtains--friendship, art, and the rest--and the values he pursues--romance, success, and the like--and then: You. It's not what he needs to share but what he has shared and that he needs to. A simultaneous knowing and not, the potential and the actual and the potentially actual, and distance.
