+Ma'ayan Plaut wrote one of the best explanations for what I do that I've ever read: "I don’t exist to post on social networks. I exist to think about our audiences: where they are, what they want, how and when they want it, why they want what they want. Posting is a minute fraction of my time. My time is mostly spent immersed in the world so that I can understand, organize, translate, convey, and converse about it."

"How lucky to be ignorant,
to greet joy without a trace of suspicion,
to take that first step without worrying what
comes trailing after..."

(from "Waking" by Stephen Dobyns)

"I love language as much as any element in the universe, but I also have trouble living anywhere other than in language. If I'm not writing it down, experience doesn't really register."

(David Shields, How Literature Saved My Life)

"Try to remain humble. Smartness kills everything.

The object of art is not to make salable pictures. It is to save yourself."

Sherwood Anderson in a letter to his 18-year-old son, found in Posterity: Letters of Great Americans to Their Children (via +Maria Popova 's literary jukebox)

This is so interesting. "...When we adapt to a new tool that extends a function previously performed by the mind alone, we gradually lose touch with our former capacity because a "built-in numbing apparatus" subtly anesthetizes us to accommodate the attachment of a mental prosthetic connecting our brains seamlessly to the enhanced capacity inherent in the new tool." And did I mention scary?

This thoughtful reflection from +Baratunde Thurston on a life experiment is worth the read: "I am neither a Luddite nor a hermit, but I am more aware of the price we pay: lack of depth, reduced accuracy, lower quality, impatience, selfishness, and mental exhaustion, to name but a few. In choosing to digitally enhance, hyperconnect, and constantly share our lives, we risk not living them."

"One of the great helps to success is to be cheerful; to go to work with a full sense of life; to be determined to put hindrances out of the way; to prevail over them and to get the mastery. Above all things else, be cheerful; there is no beatitude for the despairing." Amen.

west of rest is sleep
east, dream
where waters meet
north, emptiness,
south, wakefulness,
and out, rising up
to the stars, peace

Introduction
Hi. I'm Sarah. (I'm also one of those obnoxious people who insist on using their middle initial, because seriously, do you even realize how many Sarah Millers there are in the world?)

If you're curious, LinkedIn can tell you all you need to know about me professionally. Like that I'm one focused, dedicated, hardworking girl. 

My website can tell you all you need to know about me personally. Like that I don't share every little thing with the internet, but I do share almost everything that interests me, and I'm interested in a lot.

(And if you're looking for the super secret door to my heart, too bad: I'm happily married. But let's talk books anyway.)
