WHAT IS

THE WORD?

It's

identity

Writing,
when all is
said and done,
is an attempt
to understand
one's own
circumstance
and to
clarify
the 
confusion of 
existence . . .
isabel allende
The idea of feeling isolated is scary to
me – to walk through the world alone would be heartbreaking.
                                     jacqueline woodson
Books are medicine. A library is a medicine cabinet.
                                               sandra cisneros
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.
