my week in objects (mostly).

October 30, 2020

1. this sticker.

{for keeping spirits up.}

2. this scrap fabric.

{for becoming a bunny tail.}

3. this other scrap fabric.

{for becoming a kitty tail.}

4. this raincoat.

{for keeping a small person very dry on a very wet walk to find a dropped treasure.}

5. this other parent.

{for being here.}

other things:

the story of an awakening must begin with how many had been permitted to sleep in the first place.

it has come to my attention that my apartment sucks.

red, wine, and blue.

it’s not an accident that, every cycle, the boogeyman of the democrats is a woman.

pumpkin spikes, et cetera.

the rules under which they operate.

both the math and society’s expectations was stacked against her.

that’s fake news.

have hope. (and enjoy yourself.)
