my week in objects (mostly).

October 8, 2021

1. these toilet paper rolls.

{because in the hierarchy of craft supply toilet paper rolls, they’re at the top.}

2. this name practice.

{and school being back in session.}

3. this borrowed dress.

{and the friend who lent it.}

4. these grapes.

{just like every year.}

5. this felt.

{and slowly confirming details of costumes to be.}

other things:

the terror of divorce.



becoming abolitionists.

presenting myself for myself.

the quiet botanist.

    The toilet paper roll reminded me to save mine to make a drive through Car Wash for my toddler, it’s literally her favorite activity. She’ll be able to wash her own cars now!
