“Let your memory break open.”
– Joy Harjo

The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light. Gentle work. Steadfast work. Life-saving work in those moments when life and shame and sorrow occlude our own light from our view, but there is still a clear-eyed loving person to beam it back. In our best moments, we are that person for another.  

– James Baldwin

“Writing is finding the courage to discover and embrace our truth, and then become the master of that truth..”
– Laura Lentz

“You will write if you will write without thinking of the result in terms or a result,  but instead think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting.  

It will come if it is there and if you will let it come, and if you have anything, you will get a sudden creative recognition. The great thing is not to ever think about form but let it come. Does that sound strange from me?  They have accused me of thinking about nothing else.  Do you see the real joke?  It is the critics who have really thought about form always, and I have thought about – writing!

– Gertrude Stein
