'When we arrive at the house, my parents aren't yet home. We are here as a couple for the first time, Tris and me. Anticipation heavy upon my shoulders.' (Introduction)


  • Epigraph:

    She feels it close now, the appointed season

    The invisible thread is broken as she flies;

    Suddenly, without warning, without reason, 

    The guiding spark of instinct winks and dies. 

    -'The Death of the Bird ', A. D. Hope

    'Health, wellness, well-being, words which resonate with the most basic social questions of how we are toward one another. This year our answers have been drastically rearranged – we care for one another with distance, and forego almost all the habits of flourishing or eudaimonia. Not that it’s ever been simple: our essayists for Overland 239 approach these problems from a wide variety of intersecting experiences and disciplines.'
