Passager Poet Maryhelen Snyder
and 32 Honorable Mentions

I read a single sentence from Kierkegaard that gave me great joy. He writes that deep down in the secret heart of happiness, lives anxiety, which is also despair. And they need to be left there. They need to live exactly there. I think that idea touched me because I tend to want to resist my despair.
