Typewriter Act

October 2021

From the Jessica Esch: Fill in the Blanks exhibition 

Original Statement:
"What would I have done if I hadn’t done this? I have no means of knowing, because one life is all we get. It would have had something to do with the stage, dancing. But then, actresses grow old, dancers grow wobbly, whereas a writer still has a typewriter. And I think I’ve been learning and growing in writing all these years. If there’s a life after death, I want to work." -P.L. Travers
