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.

the drawings below make me hungry for etching...
but alas, i have no print shop at my disposal. i've been thinking a lot about going back to school part-time just to take advantage of the facilities. or maybe i should start thinking about other artist programs? residencies and things like that. the hard part largely (lately) is not being sure where i fit in. and i'd really like to maybe possibly hopefully do something with writing. get a bit involved in the literary world. i have no clue really where to start and feel sort of sheepish about the whole thing. maybe i need to just go for it... build up my "rejection letters" file. i plan on one turning the file in to a coffee table book one day. ha!

Do you have the equivalent there of what we here call the CAE, Council of Adult Education? It's a great place to enrol in all manner of courses from the literary, professional writing and editing, to art, photography and loads more.

You'd do well starting with such a place. Good luck with it.

thanks, kate! i notice that the better i read, the better i write. for sure. i still get really bashful though... which is weird seeing as how i write here every day.

elisabeth, i don't think we have something like that here. there are adult education programs at most universities though... i wonder if i should start thinking about grad school? or at least make a more concrete goal about it. i think i want something outside of my own self-directed schedule to answer/respond to.
