I am in northern Iceland, 913 miles and a softly arcing mapline away from my own Norwegian beginning stories, and I have a lot of questions, too, about things I don't understand, that can't be easily explained or ordered, in my mind anyway. I have plenty of names, but no way yet to compile them, or to at least attach a meaning I'm willing to accept.-- Life Expectancy by Kirsten Rian. Kirsten's new book of poetry also includes several essays. In both poems and prose she explores family history, motherhood, and life taken in unexpected directions.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
