happy birthday sylvia
The Lady Lazarus would have been 79 today! Becca K said on Facebook that Halloween seems like the right time for Sylvia Plath to have a birthday, and I would tend to agree - even though I've posted this beachy photo, what we know about Sylvia's usual day-to-day style is that it's all besweatered collegiate chic, and that is certainly right for autumn. I would have loved to see her style at that advanced age. Maybe she would have been on this blog. Did you know Sylvia submitted dozens of times to Seventeen Magazine before one of her pieces was published there? I think I submitted once and gave up. Persistence, that's what this generation lacks. Am I too old now?
