ee cummings

"it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are" ee cummings.

i have always held a secret love for ee cummings secret because no one has ever really asked me about him but when i was small i loved him because he doesnt capitalize letters or use punctuation in my young mind that was the coolest thing any published writer could ever do

Now I love him for other reasons. His breadth and depth as a writer is inspiring, his work is flawless, and- come on ladies- he is just so cute!

This quote has been stamped in the back of my mind for a while now. As I round the halfway point through my last year as a student, I am scared. I am afraid of finding a job, I am afraid of living alone, I am afraid of not knowing what the future holds. And I am very afraid of how close that future is. I feel like Peter Pan, and one of the lost boys. I don't want to grow up. Alas, I also know that a great adventure awaits. And who would I be to turn away from adventure? So, for now, I continue to plug away, preparing what I can for an untold future, with growing anticipation every day, remembering that it takes courage to grow up and become who I am meant to be.

And for that, I love ee cummings even more.
