It is so rewarding to finally see my essay Future Perfect printed in Hippocampus Magazine‘s August 2017 issue. For so long, I’ve seen this essay only as a word doc or PDF on my own computer, and it’s truly gratifying to see it in its new home. I love Hippocampus and I feel very lucky to have placed my little word bundle there.
The theme of this month’s issue of Hippocampus Magazine is “Strangers.” In my essay, Future Perfect, I explore how intimately entwined we can sometimes feel with the strangers that we meet in our daily lives. It’s a story about a story I told myself. I used to think it was a story about my daughter, but it’s not. It’s a story about my son.
