Diving Into The Wreck.

I looked up this Adrienne Rich poem to send to a friend after a conversation we had reminded me of it, and a few lines spoke to me, answering for me one more time what I'm doing here, writing all my privacy on the internet for everyone to see. For those of you who have asked, who continue to ask, here's Adrienne Rich explaining why I'm here:

I came to explore the wreck.

The words are purposes.

The words are maps.

I came to see the damage that was done

and the treasures that prevail.
