    Dear Mr. Conway, I’ve had a tough year (or three), and my mood has been increasingly grim of late. But… But, now, into my life comes Strange Flowers—and I have to say it has been one of the most profoundly delightful lights during a dark time. I thank you so much for the happy offerings which you research, curate, and send into the world. Have a lovely New Year. Most respectfully yours, Seth Joseph Weine, NYC

  2. It’s phrases like, “everyone’s favourite emo Empress”–and the fact that so many individuals featured herein are ‘my people’–that I tell everyone that will listen that this is my favorite website. 2013 has not been a great year for me either, but seeing that there’s a new post in my inbox has always given me a reason to smile, as well as being a continual reminder that the world is so much larger than I perceive. Bless you. ♥
