Why I'm Unfit for Serious Literary Inquiry
Today my friend Thomas shared with me his favorite utterance from The Belle of Amherst, Emily Dickinson.
Thomas: "To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else." Isn't that just amazing? It's so beautiful, I could write an entire film based on that concept alone. And all anyone wants to make movies about in Hollywood anymore is some psychopath who hacks people up.
Me: You know, I just realized, if you break her last name down, it refers to incest.
