Dear Eavan Boland


I pitched something to Lit Hub and they took it. A dream. But bittersweet. 

Because it’s for Eavan Boland.

It’s about motherhood, and middle age, and passion and confusion and regret. 

So it’s also for all mothers who have art stirring, and waiting, inside them. Go be you. I know it feels hard. But do it.

One thought on “Dear Eavan Boland

  1. Thank you for introducing me to Boland. My corner of creativity is visual art, not poetry. I don’t have a good foundation of poets or poetry but I’m drawn to it enough to be moved, and that’s what matters most, right? The final letter in the Lit Hub piece is wonderful, summing up the process you went through with spare wisdom.
