I’m not that familiar with Jim Carroll’s work, but I just read this quote of his over at Coilhouse blog, and find it very resonant:
My voice has a quiver.
A quiver is where you keep arrows until you shoot them.
–Jim Carroll, “The Child Within”
So, RIP, Jim Carroll. I think you just gave me an epiphany that my therapist has been trying to get me to come to for several months, and in just two sentences. Thanks for that.
