I walk out the door and right away there are people, sounds, smells, animals, plants. It all works on me like a drug. Also: chocolate. I'm in incurable eavesdropper and I scribble down the conversations of others and save them. I find these snippets useful and inspiring in many ways. (less)

What if Parents Had to Get Licenses To Have Kids? Interview with Author Kristen Tsetsi

Happy New Year!


It’s been a while since I’ve written here but I’m returning to share a conversation I’ve been having with Kristen Tsetsi, author of The Age of the Child, a novel that got me off to a thoughtful start for the year. In her novel, Tsetsi asks a provocative question: what if those of us who want to be parents had to get a license to do it?



Tsetsi’s novel takes place in a near

Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson
“I suppose a better sister would have set about weaving him a shirt from nettles and throwing it over his furred-over body so that he could be released from his enchantment and resume his human form. I give him some cat food instead.”

“It is the memory of this relief that will haunt her in the months to come. It will start to unsettle her tonight when they eat the lasagna and carve up the chocolate cake. It will continue to disturb her when Robbie leaves for boot camp, and later, when he is assigned to duty nearly three thousand miles away at Camp Lejeune. It will scald her when she learns he has been deployed to Iraq. Each day she will think back to this day and remember how she nodded and wiped her eyes. She will remember how Robbie’s body seemed to loosen, open up, how he squared his shoulders and embraced her as if he’d been practicing all his life for this moment. Sometimes she thinks she will be haunted every day by the memory of the relief she felt when Robbie asked her to let him go. And she did.”
Elizabeth Marro, Casualties

“Pain and beauty, our constant bedfellows”
Nick Bantock, Griffin and Sabine

“My dream is to walk around the world. A smallish backpack, all essentials neatly in place. A camera. A notebook. A traveling paint set. A hat. Good shoes. A nice pleated (green?) skirt for the occasional seaside hotel afternoon dance.”
Maira Kalman, The Principles of Uncertainty

“Language is like a road, it cannot be perceived all at once because it unfolds in time, whether heard or read. This narrative or temporal element has made writing and walking resemble each other.”
Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

“Walking . . . is how the body measures itself against the earth.”
Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

“A lone walker is both present and detached, more than an audience but less than a participant. Walking assuages or legitimizes this alienation.”
Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
