I know, I know, I’ve been somewhat MIA over the past few weeks, and for that I’m sorry. I promise I won’t always be this absent.
My apology, while it may not be worth much to you, bears with it a gift of sorts in the form of a wonderful quote by Lorrie Moore, whose book Bark I am currently enjoying.
Most things good for writing are bad for life. “May your life be not very good material” is a blessing I offer students and small babies.
Isn’t this so true? I laughed especially hard at “small babies.” Maybe I should be blessing my own children in such a way.
