Is Waiting Also Living?

Nancy K. Miller. Is Waiting Also Living?

We wait in our chairs
to hear our name called.
Some in wheel chairs,
Others with carers, canes,
oxygen tanks, or
neck braces. Soon my turn.
—Elizabeth Bishop, “In the Waiting Room”

Nancy K. Miller. Diary

Welcome. Some musings on my current preoccupations with the worlds of illness and the worlds of books: the vicissitudes of living with cancer and the need, for now, to launch (a k a promote) my new memoir, My Brilliant Friends: Our Lives in Feminism. Naturally, I inhabit both spaces, which makes for a strangely bifurcated, though far from boring, existence. Click to view both Feminist Friendship Archive and My Multifocal Life projects.
