you should be reading this blog

i think the reason why i like jesus’ favorite so much is because when she started writing (on a dare from her uber-geek friends), she sounded like me, only with actual talent.  she wrote mostly about what geeks all her friends were, and even though she was mocking you could read the love underneath…or at least i could.  she went away for a while, after the death of her very-loved step-mother, and since then has re-appeared, writing more about how much she loves/misses/grieves over her death.

it’s not right to say that her despair entertains or amuses me, but her ability to articulate her pain and yet somehow make it universal ….connects to something inside of me that makes me want to share it with you.
