Most forms of therapy are premised on the assumption that the acceptance and expression of the contradictory and painful feelings provoked by grief are essential to emotional health. When we choose to forget or deny the legitimate suffering in our lives, we sacrifice our capacity for pleasure as well. In this story the therapist makes an intervention and the patient responds. Her silent associations demonstrate a strangely distanced flood of painful memories, vague fears, and morbid fantasies that must more explicitly be felt in the course of therapy. (13 pp.)
