Dear Airplanes



Dear Airplanes,

Sky cotton washed in
light, beaming the way your wings
and my soul tip up.

From Sarah, with joy

The Lost Challenges: Days of The Week Spell Out 234 129 8 hours, 6 min ago  
Eliot Schrefer
“…the primary trait of young adult literature is that the author’s emphasis is on plot and character and not on his own brilliance. And because few people talk about whether a young adult work is commercial or literary; the two are still in sync, and everyone’s benefitting.”
Eliot Schrefer

Jack Gilbert
“We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,
but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have
the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world. To make injustice the only
measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.”
Jack Gilbert, Refusing Heaven

Becky Thank you Sarah for the friend invite. I really liked your angle with the Pet Diaries. The dog and the cat both had charrrming personalities! I think Pet Diaries would make for a good book =)
