The loneliest of all moments comes when I turn off the lights, am about to fall asleep and I enter into the infinite abyss where everything is darkness.

The most horrifying thing is not that I am alone at the shores of that obscure ocean, but the thought that my two little girls will be by themselves confronting the same darkness in a different and remote shore, and there is nothing I can do to be with them and help them when their nightmares come.
