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.

that was FUN!

the most interesting thing about yesterday's exercise in PRINT-ON-DEMAND/NEED/WANT is that everyone who sent me an email about it is female. and this is a wonderful, wonderful thing! also, all the females are artists. writers, poets, makers, painters. again, this is SUCH a wonderful, wonderful thing! i couldn't be more pleased and honored and it was just so much fun to reach out to others through art yesterday. i know it's just a simple woodcut - basically, a stamp - of a simple sentence but there was something about that sentence that really resonated with me and it's such a wonderful, wonderful thing to know that it resonated with others too. beautiful. absolutely beautiful. thank you so much, ladies. you are all so stunning and funny and talented. thank you for participating in a heartfelt/conceptual exercise. i like it that it's a girl's club. ha! the prints will ship monday.

p.s. the poems about expiring are officially expired.

the poem is dead.
long live the poem.

p.p.s the offer below has also expired. i'll do it again in the near future.

viva la resistance.

My poem is gone, too. I feel a little sorrow but not too much. It's good to choose to dispense with things sometimes, including words.

I saw people jump at the opportunity to have a print, but I held back. I didn't want to seem greedy, have never done such a thing through the blogosphere yet and I'm glad for others who felt the need greater than mine. Still it would be 'nice'....

Another day. Thanks, Angela.
