So I like including representations of light, texture and the evocative gesture (a cast-off bra, a weathered book on the sidewalk, a damp stuffed animal in a dumpster). As I walk around taking photos and examining thrift stores and garbage, I try to listen with my eyes and hands. Writing becomes an embodied experience, not only an intellectual one.”—Sarah Larivièreon the Lex-ICON blog
