The Write Christine

3.10.2011
I found a new bloggess and she posted a lovely list of phenomenal women writers that had me captivated like a mother trucker.

I kept coming back to one writer in particular, Edna St. Vincent Millay. Not only did she prefer to be called Vincent (My biological daddy's name that I heart so dear) but she wrote a poem that made my heart double thump in recognition. Her words have meaning and then some for little ole me:

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends–
It gives a lovely light!
