About Me

since feeling is first / who pays any attention / to the syntax of things / will never wholly kiss you…
for life’s not a paragraph / and death, I think, is no parenthesis
~ e. e. cummings ~

I think periods and commas should go inside the quotation marks. But I’m learning that life doesn’t always follow those rules. Sometimes, in fact, life is more like a run-on sentence, and I have to struggle to keep up, placing commas where I can to give myself a breather. I’m trying to stop fixating on “the syntax of things.” Join me as I strive to live a life that is frugal and fulfilling.
