my week in objects (mostly).

April 9, 2021

1. these morning glories.

{and the moonflowers, too, for being a week bigger.}

2. these supplies.

{despite the world’s slowest progress.}

3. these walls et cetera.

{for looking better today than they did yesterday.}

4. these clothes.

{for being back on the line. also, that magnolia.}

5. this wheatgrass.

{for growing so tall.}

other things:


now what?

sipping on the poisoned chalice of American life.

eat a doughnut if you want to.

this one last thing.

the aapi collection.

    Wow, thank you for the Food&Wine piece, Erin! It mirrors so much of my own experience and internal monologue. What a relieving and validating read.
