About Harriet


So long, Harriet

By John S. O'Connor

The other Harriet — Harriet Beecher Stowe — says in Uncle Tom’s Cabin that “friendships are discovered not made.” Joining this blog over the past few months, I discovered (and re-discovered) many new friendships — like-minded people and especially people who challenged my mind in different ways. As I sign off, I’d like to thank the Poetry Foundation, my fellow bloggers, and really everyone who took the time to read, write, and share their ideas. I know I’ll be an active Harriet reader in the future! Every best wish for 2010, John.

    Well Harriet, if you aren’t dead yet, friendships are NOT discovered, they are made.

    Love is a human creation and we don’t ‘fall’ into it.

    Of course, I wont convince you or anyone else who doesn’t already know it.

    My only hope is that I will create in you all a small, undying current of thought and feeling, which will cause you to discover this truth for yourself.

    That is, if you aren’t, in fact, dead yet.
