farm morning

Such wonderful fruits can grow in the desert.  The apricots were so ripe, we ate them right away off the tree.  The few we bought turned to mush in the bag.  The peaches are delicious to the point of religious experience.  The long plums aren’t ready yet.  We found just a few of those trees […]

tassel anxiety

I was reading about Turkish towels.  I hear they’re excellent because they’re thinner, dry faster, stay cleaner.  Sounds great. But then I saw the tassels.  I’m anti-tassel.  I think I got that from my mom, who is also anti-tassel.  She makes tons of scarves, and never with tassels or fringe.

vacation bible school day two: real pipecleaners, dissociation, gender anarchy

I was sitting in this crafts class, on an undersized plastic chair, doing the thing where I don’t really talk, and I’m there, but I’m kind of in another dimension.  I could say something, but it’s hard.  Nobody needs to know my name.  It’s nearing the end of the day.  I want to blend in […]

me:  I need a vacation from your OCD. Ming:  Me too. me:  Let’s go! Ming:  Where should we go? me:  Sanetown. Ming:  Where’s that? me:  I don’t know.  I’ve never been there. [laughter] Yesterday with friend and sunflowers.

free dance workshop yesterday

Here we are after dancing for two hours.  It was really good for me.  The radical mental health collective collaborates with Kimberly, the lady in green shorts, who is a dance master facilitator.  Does Happy Earth Market have amazing light?  Are modern phone cameras wonderful?  Because I think we look really beautiful.
