"I am a writer, a writer of fictions. I am the heart that you call home. And I've written pages, upon pages, trying to rid you from my bones." ~The Engine Driver, the Decemberists.

Hi. I'm Philippa, and I like to write. Poems, mostly. I'm 19, and I'm taking a gap year in Beijing. I used to live in Shanghai and miss it like crazy.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

"Ahi, fu una nota del poema eterno
Quel ch'io sentiva e picciol verso or è."
Giosue Carducci
"
Ah me! What I felt was a note of the eternal poem; and now it's no more than a tiny little verse."

P.S. Frances Liu, or Phenomenal Freak, was once a writer on Fictionpress. She passed away, aged only 15, May 3rd 2006, in a parasailing accident. Although she no longer lives on, her words do. Please read them and write her reviews that she will never be able to receive now. I know that if she had continued to bless us with her company in this world, her words could have developed into something even more incredible. If you have time, please go to her Fictionpress http://www.fictionpress.com/u/395297/Phenomenal_Freak
