indecisions, visions, and revisions

Editor in Chief of the 2014 Kenyon Young Writers Anthology and 2013 National Scholastic Silver Medal winner for poetry. One time David Sedaris called me special.

“Here’s the thing the Mayor [of Ferguson] doesn’t understand. As a general rule, no one should ever be allowed to say, ‘there is no history of racial tension here’. Because that sentence has never been true ANYWHERE ON EARTH.”

At the end of each day, I write an “atomic sentence,” a single statement that summarizes the most vital lesson about that day.

At times where I flail, fumble, and otherwise seek a signpost, these sentences have helped — personal lifelines indicating a larger story. Each day, an atomic unit in a living network.

—   I love Liz Danzico's idea to end each day with an “atomic sentence,” inspired by Richard Feynman’s one sentence to be passed on to the next generation.  (via explore-blog)
