I really do hate that word. I’m using it because I’m about a third of the way through “The Complete Stories” by Flannery O’Connor and I don’t intend to stop till I’m done. They are amazeballs! I was not able to appreciate them in high-school since a little bit of leftover little girl aesthetic prevented me from seeing past the vulgar scenery. Now I really love the stories and plan to enjoy them as quickly as possible! So there may be a very brief hiatus from art while I plow through.
