...Om I chant with 28 women and men
clad in spandex twisting and sweating
and breathing, reaching for something
like fulfillment. If Kali came into the room
she’d stamp out our incense and tear
out our throat chakras to cease
our incessant Oms. Kali with her bloody
scythe and golden trident, Kali
whose body is bathed in ash,
whose wide third eye pierces through
the past and present and future
of us all to reduce us back
to what we really are—
water, salt, water, salt.
— Gloria Muñoz

Our Production Manager

Hillary is a freelance writer and producer based in NYC. Her personal essays have been published both online and in print, most recently in Eating Well magazine, and her trivia questions can be found in select episodes of the hit series Cash Cab. Before turning to writing full-time, Hillary worked as Manager of Development for Lion Television, a production company specializing in creating unscripted content for national cable networks. Hillary majored in History and Literature at Harvard University, which was kind enough to broaden its definition of “literature” to include sitcoms from the 50s and 70s.

Well, all children are sad
but some get over it.
Count your blessings. Better than that,
buy a hat. Buy a coat or pet.
Take up dancing to forget.

Forget what?
Your sadness, your shadow,
whatever it was that was done to you
the day of the lawn party
when you came inside flushed with the sun,
your mouth sulky with sugar,
in your new dress with the ribbon
and the ice-cream smear,
and said to yourself in the bathroom,
I am not the favorite child.
— Margaret Atwood

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
— Mary Oliver

...I don’t think I actually remember
this day. I don’t think the scene
in my head is real— must instead

be the retelling of the story that
I have memorized and rehearsed—
that my mind has filled in the gaps.

And yet, it would explain why,
twenty-one years later, we
can feel the phantom hurt inside

each other; how our pains align
themselves in symmetry, or in
compliment, like mirror selves.
— Sarah Kay

A redwood tree stood
alone
with its lean and lit body
unable to follow the
cars that went by with
frenzy
a tree is always an immutable
traveller.

Memory fades, memory adjusts, memory conforms to what we think we remember.
