I'm really excited that my visual work; spanning photography, digital collage, & other mediums, is featured on potluck mag this week. Check back every day through the 14th for visual bits by me. Follow me on twitter for direct links to new stuff.
earlier in the week I started doing a single card tarot reading every morning. I'm trying to hold myself to it.
hope, openness, calm, especially after a crisis or an explosion of some sort.
healing & regeneration.
let others see the real you.
don't hide yourself for fear of other people's disapproval or scorn.
how do you open yourself up to the world? how do you create that connection?
It feels like a hundred years since I decided to move here.
New York disappears from me. Every day it retreats further into the fog. It becomes more & more like the generic photographs. It becomes less like an actual breathing place & starts to look like just a movie set.
I guess it didn't feel so much like a real place when I lived there either. What you see of New York, what is allowed to leave the state borders, is really nothing like what's actually waiting for you in the streets.
What's waiting on the front lines.
But it's disappearing on me. I want to keep it, but it's running away.
Just now, out my window, I'm certain I heard a pack of coyotes. They do live around here, in the hills.
I swear I heard them eating something, killing it. There was barking & howling & it filled the neighbourhood. It rose from the earth, spiraling into the sky like a dust-storm. Then, there was this screaming. This inhuman, animal scream coming up from something's gut. Coming up from something's terror.
I've been accepted to the Graduate Writing Program at The California Institute of the Arts. This is one of the top hybrid writing programs in the country. I am extremely honoured to accept my position in the program.
I will be a California girl beginning the first week of June. & officially a grad student again this fall.
recently, as a way to relax my brain & keep idle hands busy, I started making little digital collages. on a whim today I thought I would upload a few to society6 (where they will potentially be for sale in the near future). I mostly like to add plants & other natural things to people or objects, but I'm venturing into creating shapes and/or fonts as well.
You can also see the collages in my portfolio (which will be updated regularly). Bookmark my society6 page to purchase prints as they become available.
"One moment, in all of history, was captured, but the moments before and after it disappeared into the onrush of time; only that selected moment itself was privileged, saved, for no other reason that its having been picked out by the camera's eye."
