Nancy Meagher and I have been sketching in Emily Dickinson's bedroom in preparation for the Amherst Poetry Festival, where we will have a table of paintings and a booklet for young artists to work in... I am imagining Emily Dickinson at her desk, taking an unfolded envelope out of her dress pocket and beginning to write as the daylight fades...
