I do believe I have stumbled upon my next step.
I am enamored and daydreaming about this program in connection with this one, and officially have reason to believe that London is calling. I think, for now anyway, New York may have run its course in my little adventurous life. Is it serendipitous that I've already booked a ticket and plan to visit this very city where the university resides, before having even an inkling that such a program existed for me???? Or that I have not published my own works just yet because it simply has not been the time. Or that I've been wanting to move abroad for quite some time now (read: all of my life), and perhaps, on all fronts, professional and personal, the time has come?

Dr. MK Perkins.
it's just a daydream, at the moment.
once the application is sent, it will be a plan of action.
Now, won't it.
(that's how my journey to Sarah Lawrence began!)
so, Dear Lord, I am trusting you to lead the way.

Not just the passing of a public figure, but merely a wife who has become an icon for what every wife (or spouse) desires from the person they married:
"I am imperfect in a million ways, but I always thought I was the kind of woman, the kind of wife to whom a husband would be faithful. I had asked for fidelity, begged for it, really, when we married. Leave me, if you must, but be faithful to me if you are with me." -- Elizabeth Edwards

and at the end of this two thousandth and tenth year a.d.,
i can say with much accuracy and conviction that
(though i truly enjoy the company of a companion i adore
and who tickles me from the inside out
and though the attraction of and to certain people make life worth living,
and though i fully and completely believe in the kind of precious unconditional
love that i see others existing in,
there really happens to be some guy out there
who prefers-yearns, even-
to find out all there is to know about the bizarre bird that is me
and who is compelled to avail himself to
build some kind of existence together)
the furthest away from
a committed significant other*
(or desiring to have offspring of my own
with said unwanted s.o.)
than i've ever been in my adult life.
but. it is what it is.
que seh-ra, seh-ra.
