I take some things apart and put other things back together. I'm not afraid of knives, hot glue, moldy books, or power tools.

You may have seen my head talking in a quasi-documentary about an ersatz cult/secret society and the radical weirdos who opposed it.

I make zines, keep notebooks, lick stamps, fabricate alternate realities, and walk a lot of hills.

Rainer Maria Rilke
“The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Georgia O'Keeffe
“I think it's so foolish for people to want to be happy. Happy is so momentary--you're happy for an instant and then you start thinking again. Interest is the most important thing in life; happiness is temporary, but interest is continuous.”
Georgia O'Keeffe

“Also: people pretended not to want what they wanted. Pretending tried to hide the will. That was the secret of adult life, the undisclosed motor of the whole thing. People wanted what they wanted. They did what they could to get it. It wasn't complicated. Kenny knew that was the last step he needed to take before he could be an adult: he had to learn what he wanted, then had to learn to want what he wanted.”
Kevin Canty, Into the Great Wide Open

Joan Didion
“I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.”
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Dana Spiotta
“I'm turning fifty, and it is just now dawning on me that I have limited time," Nash said. "No kidding. I always felt my life was circumscribed by the finite terms, you know? There is a whole world of things I missed out on and will never experience. Whatever I have done, there is an endless amount I have not done. Do you know what that tells me?"
...
"It tells me it is not meant to be this all-encompassing journey. It is not meant to be catholic or encyclopedic. By now I have carved some grooves in this life. A few. What I need to do is hunker down and make those grooves deep and indelible.”
Dana Spiotta, Eat the Document
