Enda St. Vincent Millay (1892 – 1950)
Enda St. Vincent Millay was a poet and playwright, born February 22, 1892, to Cora Bruzelle and Henry Millay, the oldest of three daughters. In 1899, her mother asked her father to leave, although they legally divorced in 1904. Millay and her mother and sister settled in Camden, Maine, where they lived with Millay’s aunt. 
Millay’s mother taught her children to be independent and ambitious, which often got them into trouble at school. While at school, Millay had relationships with several other girls there. It was here she started writing poetry, first writing in her school’s magazine. She was also published in a children’s magazine and won several awards for her poetry.
In 1912 Millay’s poem Renascence won fourth place and was published in the poetry book The Lyric Year. This success brought Millay a small amount of fame, and an offer from Caroline Dow, who heard Millay recite her poems at an inn in Camden, to pay for her education at Vassar College. In 1917, Millay graduated from Vassar with a BA.
After graduation, Millay and friends moved to New York City. Here, Millay met many other writers and poets, and wrote constantly. In 1920, she joined the Provincetown Playwrights and published A Few Figs From Thistles. In 1921, she traveled to Europe to write for Vanity Fair. She won a Pulitzer Prize for The Ballad of the Harp Weaver in 1923. The same year, Millay married Jan Boissevain. After the marriage, the couple built a farm in Austerlitz, New York, where Millay continued to write until her death in 1950. By the end of her life, Edna St. Vincent Millay had published sixteen poetry collections and six plays, as well as countless other works.

Whatever will happen will happen, but choose your companions with care. Choose them because you like to look at them and you like the sound of their voices, and they have profound secrets in them that you wish to know. In other words, choose them because you love them. Otherwise you will not be able to bear their company for very long.

Hey Ciar, can I get a one-letter draw? I don't have a particular question, just a concern with general financial matters. Thanks ^^

lebornaciar answered:

hello, dear. good news for you: i drew gort, the field, which signifies pleasantness, widespread provision, and civilization. it’s not a big windfall, but you (and probably many other people in the same stroke) will be provided for. maybe new orleans will do something nice for its teachers? :]

Thank you for this~ It eases my mind a bit ^^

divinity will stain your fingers and mouth like a pomegranate. it will swallow you whole and spit you out, wine-dark and wanting. you will reach for it again and again, greedy human fingers clutching at everything you can reach. the divine will curl its way through your veins and take you over, and it will not leave you quietly. i feel divinity in my bones like aching; like fire.
