During the renovation of Poets House in 2009, Bill Murray held a short poetry reading with the construction workers, as a gesture of appreciation for their work. Between the jokes, the moments sharing Emily Dickinson are poignant.

As Emily Dickinson might say, “A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.”

Happy Friday.
