"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain." - Emily Dickinson
Dickinson's extraordinary poetry at its most intimate. It never ceases to surprise us that Dickinson deliberately kept her work from finding a readership until after her death. Who then did she have in mind when she wrote the above line? While many artists might lose their drive in the absence of an audience, it seemed to strengthen Dickinson, giving a sense of freedom and honesty to her work that is seldom rivaled.
In this illustration, Dickinson's own handwriting and poetry radiate from a letter, forming the wings of something eternal. Her words and their message outlasted her to reach us, and they will outlast us to reach those who come after us.
