This poem made me emotional. It feels so familiar. These questions and thoughts run through my head most days. Thank you, Vivek Shraya, for putting words to this feeling.

When you love a book so much that you hug it. And take lipstick cues from the cover.

Ms. Bixby's Last Day | John David Anderson

This one could sit alongside other tales about Great Journeys. Topher, Steve, and Brand's quest to see Ms. Bixby is as epic as the trek to Mordor or the Land of Oz. It reminded me in some ways of Stand By Me as well.

"'If I had one son & one daughter & could only educate one of them, I would educate my daughter. You know why? A girl without an education has no power; she is always at the mercy of others.'" My dad used to say the same thing to me growing up. I, too, feel like "the luckiest girl in the world." ❤️
