"My tongue, every atom of my blood, form'd from this soil, this air/Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same."
I found out that when chimpanzees fight over a branch of blackberries, the elders take it and lead the chimps into the hut, where the branch is divided. Most chimps get some blackberries. This gives me faith in the capacity of humanity for sharing.
People like to tell me I have a "strong personality." This never seems to be a compliment but on paper it sounds pretty good.
I belong to the Wobblies.
I also launch myself into a lot of self-improvement projects that work some of the time because I am at once restless and lazy.
On a related note I do a decent Liza Minnelli impression, which is to say my Judy Garland impression sounds a little drunk.
+I adore the work of Pablo Neruda and Louise Gluck, among many other poets, and that of feminists Angela Davis, bell hooks, and others
I'm trying to read more women authors, but I'm running into a roadblock with female poets. Help!
