Emily Dickinson’s Room

“She (Emily Dickinson) was a scholar of passing time, and the big house on Main Street was the best place to study it.”

— Dan Chiasson, December 2016 issue of the New Yorker

“…the gulf that exists between us…”

“…the gulf that exists between us as people is that when we look at each other we might see faces, skin color, gender, race, or attitudes, but we don’t see, we can’t see, the stories. And once we hear each other’s stories we realize that the things we see as dividing us are, all too often, illusions, falsehoods: that the walls between us are in truth no thicker than scenery.”

–Neil Gaiman
