The Blunder is to estimate —
Emily Dickinson. I’m analyzing her poetry for English homework and she’s difficult, but it’s a great feeling when you finally understand what she’s trying to say. Like this quote right here. I’d been reading it out loud for fifteen minutes until I finally got it: eternity isn’t an interval of time; it’s timeless and can be experienced in the now. I like Dickinson. I used to have this children’s book about her life and now that I think about it it must have been a pretty sad book.
Eternity is Then.
