I’m Actually Just Beginning.

by Em Bowen

2016-02-01 11.56.03The end of my MFA program is nearing and while I don’t think I expected to feel any particular way by this time, I am surprised by how it feels less like an event on a timeline and more of an inevitable coming together of parts of myself. There is the slightest speck of relief but mostly what I feel is excitement, like I am beginning and not ending something.
