- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass 1855, page 17




you shall above all things be glad and young
For if you're young,whatever life you wear


it will become you;and if you are glad
whatever's living will yourself become.
Girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need:
i can entirely her only love


whose any mystery makes every man's
flesh put space on;and his mind take off time


that you should ever think,may god forbid
and (in his mercy) your true lover spare:
for that way knowledge lies,the foetal grave
called progress,and negation's dead undoom.


I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

-eec




“To a psychoanalyst, whether you tell the truth or whether you lie isn’t very important. Because even lies are interesting, eloquent, revealing, just as much as what is considered truth. I distrust a writer who claims to tell the whole truth about himself, about life, or about the world.”

-Italo Calvino, in Fellini: I'm a Born Liar

I'm a girl who likes books and roadtrips. I married the best man I know, and am a new mom. I teach college literature and writing classes. Sometimes women's studies too. It's the best job in the world.

If you read my interests, that should give you a decent snapshot of the me that I currently am. You don't have to ask to add me to your friends-list, but please comment and say hello.

Most of my content is friends-only (because of work, school, etc), but I don't mind making "friends" most of the time. Just let me know who you are when you get a minute.
