n. a flash of real emotion glimpsed in someone sitting across the room, idly locked in the middle of some group conversation, their eyes glinting with vulnerability or quiet anticipation or cosmic boredom—as if you could see backstage through a gap in the curtains, watching stagehands holding their ropes at the ready actors in costume mouthing their lines, fragments of bizarre sets waiting for some other production.
Sighs united together are almost prayers; prayers coming from two hearts are almost acts of grace.
~ Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
