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.

this is my very first zine! YAY! and i want you to have it! all you have to do is click on the above image so that it gets BIG, right click to save it to your computer, adjust contrast if necessary (which it very well may be- my scanner is on the fritz so this is photograph), print it out, follow these instructions, and you have a new zine for your collection! WHOO HOO!!!

this is what it should look like when you're done:

Wow, I've been absent from here and look at what you've created. How great...I will print it in the morning, my tech smarts dwindle after about 7 p.m. Congratulations. I'm so excited for you and thanks for the gift.
