I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me.
Mary Kate Teske
Interesting factoid: when I was in college, I had a seminar in which the final project was to perform a combination of writing and music that a group (2+) of students wrote, scored, and choreographed. The woman with whom I did mine had the same last name as the woman who said this quote. Our performance was fun. She got to bonk me over the head with her trumpet.

People say to me, ‘How do I know if a word is real?’ You know, anybody who’s read a children’s book knows that love makes things real. If you love a word, use it—that makes it real. Being in the dictionary is an arbitrary distinction; it doesn’t make a word any more real than any other way. If you love a word, it becomes real.
