“About the last you write nothing. There are no words for this. Your typewriter hums. You can find no words.”
from Lorrie Moore’s “How to Become a Writer”
I am, as I’m sure you are, horrified and devastated by the Newtown massacre. There are no words good enough, but I’m trying to take solace in writing: to the people of Newtown, to my elected officials, to good friends. Want to join me?
The U.S. Postal service has set up a post office box to send messages of comfort to the people of Newtown:
Messages of Condolence for Newtown
PO Box 3700
Newtown, CT 06470
More soon with other updates.
