Hello! My name is Rebekah and I’m so glad you’re here! I’m a writer & classicist inspired by cities, strangers, the ocean, and whatever I’ve been reading lately. Some themes I love to revisit in my work are light, color, safety, nostalgia, the wistful, the whimsical, and the quiet.
I read anything, but am particularly fond of poetry, literary journalism, old books, and works in Latin.
To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object. Books must be read as deliberately and reservedly as they were written.HENRY DAVID THOREAU
