"Yet her poetry from beginning to end is concerned with prisons,vaults, cages, bars, curbs, bits, bolts, fetters,locked windows, narrow frames, aching walls.“Why all the fuss?” asks one critic.“She wanted liberty. Well didn’t she have it?A reasonably satisfactory homelife,a most satisfactory dreamlife—why all this beating of wings?What was this cage, invisible to us,which she felt herself to be confined in?”Well there are many ways of being held prisoner,I am thinking as I stride over the moor.As a rule after lunch mother has a napand I go out to walk.The bare blue trees and bleached wooden sky of Aprilcarve into me with knives of light.”
For sale: A forgotten, dilapidated California ghost town
In 1851, gold was discovered in a remote part of California, and that find birthed Seneca, a mining town that now has no miners, no residents and little besides rusted motor homes and a bar.
Now, the land and everything on it, as broken-down and busted as it may be (save for the alluring Gin Mill bar), is up for sale on Craigslist for $225,000.

While at work she would drop little pieces of herself into the food. If the the health inspector knew, he’d be appalled, but she didn’t see how a little nibble of her fingernail could hurt anyone. At home she was careful to save every stray hair she found. She’d dice them up super-fine and drop them into the fry batter. She was otherwise a very clean person, with no bad habits. She never drank or ate greasy foods on Sundays.

Interior, Niles Cranes’ house, a buzzing sound, Niles: “Oh, Maris is that you?” a swirling black void rounds the corner, it is wearing heels. The buzzing sound increases, Niles’ nose begins to bleed, “yes dear” he says.
