Ordinary life has come to seem torpid and drab


We online denizens come to need these regular low-level jolts and get antsy without them. That’s why I was tweeting in the bathroom. That’s why your friends around the table at the bar are all staring at their phones. Ordinary life has come to seem torpid and drab relative to the cascade of affirmations we find in contingent online communication.

It’s not something I ‘do’,
it’s something I must do.

The bravest thing I ever did was continuing my life when I wanted to die.

Untouchable deliciousness

I confess that I consider life
to be a thing of the most
untouchable deliciousness.

Writers who make me want to throw my hands up and give up because they are just that amazing


I put writers into two categories:
writers who make me want to write and
writers who make me want to throw up my hands and
give up because they are just that amazing.

— TJ Jarrett, interviewing Nicole Sealey for Tupelo Quarterly’s Women in Form

So I will always lean my heart as close to your soul as I can.

This sky
where we live
is no place
to lose your wings.
So love, love,

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
