ARCHIVE FOR Eileen Tomarchio
In this series, "Why I Write," members of the Grub community share what compels them to put words onto paper day after day. In this edition, Eileen Tomarchio on writing about change.
I write because wasps made nests in the soffits again.
I write because the neighbors look so young now.
I write because my husband is turning soil in the garden.
I write because my 12th grade English teacher returned my Truffaut paper with a wobble of her chin and press of my hand, and I thought I’d done something wrong.
