Roxana Robinson

  • I write about the things that disturb me, the things that won't let me alone, the things that are eating slowly into my brain at three in the morning, the things that unbalance my world. Sometimes these are things I've said or done; something they're things I've heard about or seen. Sometimes they're only sentences, sometime scenes, sometimes complete narratives. I carry these things around inside my head until I'm compelled to write them down to get rid of them. I sit down and begin.

  • ... sentimentality is emotion without responsibility; compassion is the recognition of shared humanity.
