    “I love stories. Stories have saved my life, and I also question stories even as I tell them…We all have stories to tell…It’s the complexity of the human heart that I think is poetry’s subject — the complexity of the human experience. I think the best poets writing today represent that complexity in the broadest, deepest sense.”

    ~Marie Howe from an interview with AGNI photo by Tony Roberts / Flickr, cc by-nc-sa 2.0

    This is so true for me! Without books and animals for love and escape and alternate views of self and world as a child, I shudder at how I could possibly have survived.
