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.

happy thursday

i am hoping for sun, that this drizzle will burn off our windows and evaporate, make clouds for airplanes to slice through and blow off in another direction. just for today, my day in the city. my beloved role as Girl Thursday at Slingshot.

such a hope finds me there. all day i get to sit in that huge room with beautiful work on the tall walls! and all the flowers! i have not met a grouchy person yet. it is impossible, i think, to be interested enough in art to walk in to a gallery of your own free will and then be a total sour puss. it even works on me. my anxieties melt as i cross the bridge in to San Francisco, as that beautiful skyline comes in to view, as i navigate the one-way streets, as i unbolt the door. such a hope and such a deep, calm happiness. unexpected and absolutely cherished. i dig my heels in to the pleasure of this the very second i am through the door.

come see me. :)

I just missed you. Came by on Wednesday. The gallery was closed, but a nice lady let me in so I could see your work in person.

Just amazing. So powerful to see it in real life.

That is a great freaking space, too. We ate at Cha-ya and browsed the Goodwill and Dog-Eared Books and it's too damn bad we missed you.

I like your art a great deal.
