-Audrey Hepburn (via observando)

Hi, all.  So I have been working, needle-pricking slow, deliberate, to nurture myself as a writer, reader, student.  

I have been logging some of my shapeless rambles at jessicainman.com and would love feedback.  Any and all.  And eyes.  Readers.  So, if you have a moment in this whirlwind, I  would love for you to slow down with me.  

Much love.
