"It's impossible to be just another face
in the crowd when there is another face

in the crowd that looks exactly like you."

Why I Write


"I'm just telling you to live in it. Not just to endure it, not just to suffer it, not just to pass through it, but to live in it. To look at it. To try and get the picture. To live recklessly. To take chances. To make your own work and take pride in it. To seize the moment."
Joan Didion

Where I Was From


"You are brilliant and subtle if

you come from Iowa and really strange and you live as you live and you are always very well taken care of if you come

from Iowa." Gertrude Stein


"I come from Des Moines, Iowa. Somebody had to." Bill Bryson
