I’m Cecily Walker, And this is my personal website.

Nod to Mary Oliver


Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Mary Oliver, “The Summer Day”

The Co-Star astrology app is so accurate at times, that at times it feels more like a close friend instead of an algorithm. Today was no exception.

A screenshot of the Co-Star astrology application. The image contains the text "After all you've been through, what do you still hope and dream for?"

I hope for a library that is as committed to justice, equity, and professional revolution as it is to access.

I hope for a cure for rheumatoid arthritis.

I hope for an end to COVID, dear God, haven’t we been punished enough?

I hope for more time with Lanie to make up for all the years we both spent with the wrong partners.

I dream about packing Lanie, my cat, some art supplies, my phone, and iPad and relocating to Tulum.

I dream for a chance to gather all my friends together for a huge party (maybe a wedding?) because it’s been entirely too long, and we’ve been apart long enough. I need your energy. I need to mush our cheeks together and hug your necks.

And lastly, I wish someone would drop a house on Mitch McConnell post haste.
