these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.

my artist website is here.

go vote! and make it stop raining while you're at it too please!

the big day is tomorrow! i'll be heading to the polls pretty early so that i can spend the majority of the day watching the election coverage on TV. even though Obama is ahead in the polls, i spent some time calling friends and family today making sure they're going to go vote and not leave it to chance that he'll win. i can only cast one ballot... there's no such thing as casting a vote for every body i know. and, well, people can get lazy at the most inopportune moments sometimes. it's important to participate in this and i hope everyone out there will somehow find the time to make it to a polling location despite having a busy schedule.

in other news, it is still raining. i think that makes it day 5. and to be perfectly honest... i hate the rain. i've always hated the rain. i mean, really, what's not to hate about it? i can't really be outside, definitely can't photograph any of the new stuff i've been working on, can't let my dog out or else she'll get the house all mudded up, it's horrible to drive in, etc, etc, etc. of course everyone else seems to love the rain... or at least not mind it too much. i don't even have that romantic appreciation of the rain tapping against your window at night while you drift off to sleep. nope, hate it. and as we head in to winter, i can expect more of it. boo! super boo!

i'll survive. :)

Most days, I completely agree with you in the rain. I'd rather not be out in it, I'd rather it wasn't there to interrupt my other plans and I find it mostly annoying to have to dress in layers and carry umbrellas. But I finally had a great San Francisco in the rain experience the other day ( that made me think that sometimes, just sometimes, I might be able to not hate being out in the SF rain!
