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.

nerd quotient...

learned a new word today: technophile. as far as i can tell it's a "cool" way to refer to oneself as a computer geek but i could be wrong. i'm open to being wrong. i'm also willing to admit to being quite the nerd in my own right. i mean, i write book reports for myself for no other reason than i want to. it's strangely fun. nerdy? i also read the essays of susan sontag for fun. nerdy? just a little? i also routinely read the dictionary. again, for fun. i think that last one is the tid-bit of self-effacing information that will most likely shatter any semblance of "cool" i may have possessed. :) or having used the word tid-bit. i also just discovered how great the Sisters of Mercy are (20 years to late) and even want to buy a band t-shirt. extra nerdy but i can't help it. what makes a person happy is just what makes them happy and sometimes there's no place to hide from how un-cool you really are. whatever. i'm having a great time in life reading the dictionary and listening to 80's goth. what more could a girl ask for?

p.s. new work over at HANG. check it out fellow art nerds!
