Lorrie Moore on who we are: 
“Writers are generalists with an inflamed sense of punctuation.”

And my husband when he wasn’t amused by one of my jokes, and I asked if he didn’t like me as a dumb blonde:
“You’re not that dumb.
And you’re not that blonde.”

Note: As many loves as I have in the area of arts and artists; composers, musical works, and musicians; poetry and poets; photography and photographers, they’re so widely scattered and probably outside the realm of “professional” favorites.
