There is within me a thing that is aching, aching, aching always as the days pass.

  7. I rediscovered Mary MacLane in ’85, did the first anthology on her in ’93 … and I’m so happy she’s finally being read. Her depth and fire-and-ice are comforts to many people. I’m hoping to finish a biography on her soon!
