Truth be Told

I am addicted to thrift store finds and PG Tips Tea. If you don't watch out I will use my good looks to steal something from you, probably your heart.

  1. "I write poems when I have something I am trying to figure out. It is the way I navigate the world and the issues I am struggling to understand. There is a saying that another poet taught me which goes, ‘Poetry doesn’t have to be fact, but it does have to be true’. That is important to me. Sometimes my poems dive into fantasy or fiction, but there is a truth within them that is very personal to me."
    — Sarah Kay, interviewed by Gwen Pew for Time Out Singapore (via nps2013)

    A New Perspective of the Day: Wringing Out Water from a Washcloth in Space

    Tenth graders Kendra and Meredith from Fall River, Nova Scotia recently took a top prize the Canadian Space Agency’s Science Challenge with a washcloth-wringing experiment. As part of their prize, Col. Chris Hadfield, currently living in the International Space Station, made a video showing exactly what happens when a person tries to wring out a washcloth in zero gravity.

“A Pew Research Center survey conducted Oct.-Nov. 2012 found that many library patrons are eager to see libraries’ digital services expand, yet also feel that print books remain important in the digital age.”
See, patrons use the library for more than a bathroom and a video store replacement.

    From the Department of Awesome Cuteness (and just in time for Easter!) come these debilitatingly cute photos of an adorable pit bull terrier named Boom having a spring day frolic with a fuzzy chick and an entire basket of baby bunnies.

    If you’ve just realized that you can’t stop smiling, don’t worry, neither can we.

    For two months
    I have not written
    a word.

    My voice, a low
    grumble, disturbs
    our quarter

    like the rumble
    of the millstone
    which having nothing to grind
    grinds itself.

“I spent my entire youth writing slowly with revisions and endless rehashing speculation and deleting and got so I was writing one sentence a day and the sentence had no FEELING. Goddamn it, FEELING is what I like in art, not CRAFTINESS and the hiding of feelings.” —Jack Kerouac, The Art of Fiction No. 41
