I love the things that can be made of words. We string and stack them into text messages and birthday cards and wedding vows and websites and recipes for cherry pie so that we may say to each other this is who I am or this is what I love or this is where I hurt or this is how to make a cherry pie. We use words so that we might be known, and feel a little closer. We use words so that we can ink the bigness of love and grief and loss and sex and death and beauty onto a page, so that we might understand those things of Life better, clearer in the outline of black on white.

a few other things I’ve made of words

What you’ll find here are the sorts of things I sometimes write in margins and on cafe napkins and in my head and in my yellow journal that was a gift from a thoughtful friend. The things I think about, the things I’m working on, the things I like.
