A few weeks ago, best-selling author Joshilyn Jackson heard a poem, Katherine Perry's "Baby Picture," that got her thinking about life.
“It 'poem haunted' me, stuck,” she says.
On "Writer to Reader," Jackson explains that the poem not only had her contemplating the finiteness of life, but also thinking about a novel she had read called “High Drama In Fabulous Toledo” by Lily James. The book compares life to a cafeteria line. Once a decision is made it can be difficult, if not impossible, to go back.
