But that seems accurate to me, that you couldn't imagine it, because of his 
being heartless.  I do think it's meant.

But I just can't see either Howl or Torquil feeling desire.

For Sophie, I could. But Torquil, I couldn't picture either. I think perhaps 
he compartmentalizes and we don't see that compartment.
