== Quotes ==
If the whiteness they pursue is cool and haughty and blank,history is uncool, reaches out gawkily for affinities, asserts itself boldly,threatens to mark, to break through and stain the primed white canvasthat is their life.For, having primed it, they do not know where to start,how to make a mark. They are alone in the world, a small newisland of whiteness. Or so they think; they do not know, or perhapsthey do not want to know, that the neighbourhood  is full of peoplelike them. Thus they are steeped in its silence.
Playing in the Light (2006)
