Last week I was tooling around town with my dearest Laurie Halse Anderson, and we found ourselves in the New York Public Library with our laptops. (OK, we actually planned it.) After writing (with Laurie) I walked to the dentist (without Laurie, who went downtown to protest with thousands of others), I came across this wonderful set of plaques in the sidewalk. Last week I tweeted and Instragrammed one. It was the perfect moment for that one (and always is). Check it out here.
This week’s is by Emily Dickinson. (It’s always a perfect moment for Emily Dickinson, I believe.)
And just for the fun of it, here’s another record of that day. It’s one of the few selfies I’ve ever posted:
That’s me, Laurie, and Fortitude. AMEN.
