I believe one of the great privileges of being a writer is that there is a use — the possibility of a productive end — for everything you encounter. Life is so full that every day we witness great beauty or insight or deeply felt sentiment . . . and then we move on. But I always feel there should be something more to be done with those experiences — some record made of all the daily details that provoke the mind and heart. And as a writer, there is. Nothing is lost, or needs to be.”

— Rebecca Silver Slayter, author of In the Land of Birdfishes
