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.

hints and nods

i can't tell you how many times this year the phrase fuck it all has floated through my brain. i mean that in the funniest way possible. really, you should be laughing out loud, nodding your head, totally cracking up, and saying ME TOO, SISTER!

once again, i load my possessions in to boxes. once again, big changes find me. a whole new road, a whole new phase. in between houses.

i also started a new job today. i am back to waiting tables, the true job of the artist. :) you should be laughing out loud at that comment too, fyi.

there is a light way down deep.
it is crawling slowly toward my eyes from the inside.

i was once such a hopeful girl.
maybe i am on my way back to that place.
maybe there are old and new titles alike waiting somewhere for me off in the virgin future.

I've been thinking of you so strongly sweetheart this week all week thinking of you and hoping you are okay and the agressiveness of spring isn't getting to you. Send me your address when you think of it and I will write you a letter in my way and I love you.
