“I was born with the devil in me,’ [Holmes] wrote. ‘I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing.”
― Erik Larson, The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America


The secret
Of this journey is to let the wind
Blow its dust all over your body,
To let it go on blowing, to step lightly, lightly
All the way through your ruins, and not to lose
Any sleep over the dead, who surely
Will bury their own, don’t worry.

-James Wright, excerpt from “The Journey”

I would love to travel deeply and widely. And what is the deepest and the widest you can travel? It’s to come back to where you already are. And I saw my own circumnavigation of the earth, in my mind’s eye, and I realized in that moment that nothing would be more dear to me than where I already was.
