my week in objects (mostly).

July 31, 2020

1. these rifled bags.

{because sometimes finding the perfect outfit requires a little digging.}

2. this work mess.

{and the time to make it in.}

3. this scene.

{featuring not one, but two big-screen tvs.}

4. this barrette

{for resurfacing.}

5. this reminder.

{translation: don’t clean up library.}

other things:

in America, the sanctifying role of mother is not given to everyone.

you made the choice to have those little rugrats. you deal with them.

she had no remorse.

heart first.


when coronavirus is over.

hygiene theater.

mutual aid

all the beautiful colors i’m made of.

we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair…

      These articles were out of this world. I can’t believe there aren’t more comments. The choice to have Rugrats article… Please read the whole thing, the last two paragraphs are almost out of no where, but so profound. I can’t stop thinking about it. And so we’ll curated, Erin, exactly following the mothers article clearly highlights whose voices are needed in all these arenas, and whose should be amplified. Thank you!
