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.

lately, and for the past several years, this has been the reason

i take pictures of myself to see this image with my own two eyes.  somewhere inside me lives the notion that seeing is believing and maybe i don't believe any of this is real.  everything that has come before now feels like a lie.  like sabotage.  i was never that girl.  i take pictures of myself to catalogue the deep breath in.  the held oxygen.  to prove to myself that i actually exist.
