DESERT NIGHTS, RISING STARS CONFERENCE


The past few days, I’ve been at the incredible Desert Nights, Rising Stars Conference, a writing conference that takes place at the Arizona State University in Phoenix. It’s a brilliantly organized conference and the teachers (all writers) have prepared in depth and fascinating classes. Hopefully the classes I taught were too! I’m grateful to M

Goldie answered Goodreads's question: Goldie Goldbloom
I often hold a question in my head when I fall asleep and wake up thinking about possible answers. That's not inspiration, per se. But questions are always what get me started.

“We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves.

I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“You can't measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.”
Milan Kundera

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
Audre Lorde
