Early Valentine

This early Valentine arrived in the mail today from Anna. It's called The Gorgeous Nothings and it's one of the most beautiful books I've ever owned. Read about it here! The book is composed of words Emily Dickinson wrote on flattened envelopes and scraps of paper--thoughts, lists, beginnings of poems.

It always makes me sad to read that none of Dickinson's work was published during her lifetime. I've heard that fact and read that fact over and over and it still comes as a shock.
