  1. Debbie, I loved reading this. It was like dissecting thoughts in layers, and how the past conversation and memories reviberate, conflict,  and fade with the present narrative overlaying continuously. Wow!

  2. It’s as if Ms. Millman dug her hands into the living skull and dashed its contents into poetry. This is language that defies containment, words that burn to be heard–clamor on clomor–as they maze about and seek an existence beyond their prosaic forms. This is work designed to lull, to challenge, and finally, to enlighten. Ms. Millman is a wonderworker at heart.

  3. very, very engaging visually and emotionally.  there is something in the story that i think is resonant in all of us.  the visual text gives life to the literal text and vice-a-versa.  i love this.
