Today, on the talk show that exists solely in my mind, which concerns topics such as writing, footwear, and the afterlife: Depth.

In terms of writing, but also sometimes the Sea: what is depth? Is it digging deeper and deeper into yourself until you find something universal and surprising? Sometimes I feel like I’m writing from a deep place, but I’m maybe just scratching the surface. How do I force myself to go deeper? Are Deep and Dark the same thing? Do they have to be? What if I dig and dig deep into myself and there’s nothing but there but some dried out sharpies, my childhood Bible complete with margin Abraham drawings, the remnants of a muffin and and a pile of half-used construction paper?  What do I make with that?
