Sunbeams: My theory is that everyone, at one time or another, has been at the fringe of society in some way: an outcast in high school, a stranger in a foreign country, the best at something, the worst at something, the one who’s different. Being an outsider is the one thing we all have in common.

"The Kahlil Gibran Quote Written on Burlap that Hung in the Play Room" or "Things My Mother Taught Me"
dirty linen should be washed in public
scrubbing should be an impromptu ballet
stray strands should be measured singly
perfections should be dismantled
counting should be tedious
the sum of the same
little sisters should be invited
shows should go on
hangings should be hung
words in perfect print should
burn black, melt
like lemon drops into chromosomes, and
carry us off to college.
