    "Forget roses. Forget forget-me-nots. Forget bulbs that wait forever
    to finally shoot into recognition months later. Plant rows and rows
    of dead mom, because it will seed like crazy, and you will never be able to kill it."

    -Dead Mom Reprise, Thin Noon

    "But just as I was uniquely positioned to lean on Reading Rainbow in times of duress, we are now uniquely positioned to fight with our words, our songs, our convictions. And, of course, our hope and joy. The world right now is dank and dim — it needs the curiosity and suspension of disbelief that literature and art give. It needs good men, for god’s sake it needs healing masculinity. It needs holiness, in all of its manifestations."
