    An open letter to the recent graduate,


    You have spent years carrying wrought iron anchors around your ankles, blistering your fingertips in feeble attempts to undo their rigid sailor knots one by one. But darling, you forget the knives in your pockets. You are so much more than double majors and grade point averages and master’s degrees. You are on a long road west to sunset, but your hands can steer and turn and pause and push and pull your way to glory. Spread your sails like a rose stretches her limbs to the sunlight. There is heaven on your horizon. Whatever it takes—burning your eyes with salt water, cutting your feet on the bow, sailing blindly into a midnight monsoon—whatever it takes, go to it. Meet your dandelion dreams at sunrise, and never look back.

  • "In French, you don’t say “I miss you.” You say “tu me manques,” which is closer to “you are missing from me.” I love that. “You are missing from me.” You are a part of me, you are essential to my being. You are like a limb, or an organ, or blood. I cannot function without you."

    And this articulates more than I ever could why I choose to be single.
