do good work.


23, writer, editor, ma student

beautiful weather this week. leggings & light sweaters; coffee & Covergirl. So much reading for class but it’s Dickinson—the good stuff. Some angel of a student worker took a week’s worth of filing off my hands today because I’ve been swamped. Found a place on campus with a veggie bagel spread, just like back in Ftown. Exhausted, but can’t wait to drive North tomorrow to see some of my favorite people. It’s been too long.

"Is the soul solid, like iron?
Or is it tender and breakable, like
the wings of a moth in the beak of the owl?"
Mary Oliver, from “Some Questions You Might Ask” House of Light (Beacon Press, 1990)
