Lou & Gem are beautiful, complicated, loving, mistake-filled, everything that humans are. Their friendship is the deepest love that exists. Old friends remind us of who we are and when we're lost. Gem reminds Lou to listen to the voice, the one we all have but only hear if we choose to listen to it.
"As you left their voices behind, the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world" Mary Oliver
