That's when

 Scenes from my desk today. Screws that never made it to a better place that last time I cleaned my desk.

Day 23.

Last night. Late night. To bed after 1 in the morning. This morning. Early morning. Woke before dawn.

I recently wrote my Curriculum vitae, a humorous one. It was interesting, insane. Many lives. So many ways they (I) all met, overlapped. One life connected to another by a job, a group of friends, a pair of shoes.

That's when I wore Doc Marten's. That's when I wore men's dress shoes. That's when I wore motorcycle boots. That's when I wore hiking shoes. That's when the I wore the boots again.

That's when I worked at the print shop. That's when I worked at the book shop. That's when I answered phones. That's when I answered emails. That's when I worked at another book shop, and then another. That's when I killed invasive plants. That's when I grew native plants.

That's when I was with him. That's when I dated another him. That's, wait, who is that fellow in that picture? That's when I was with him again. That's when there was nobody. That's when I got married.

That's when I danced to 80s music. That's when the dancing was terrifying. That's when the music was not too dance-y. That's when I danced to 80s music again. That's when the dancing was to records, to tapes, to CDs, to another form of 0's and 1's.

That's when I wanted to be a photographer. That's when I was a photographer. That's when I was using film. That's when film and I made a painful separation.

That's when I was happy. That's when I was uncertain. That's when I was unhappy. That's when a baby was born. That's when I was bored, angry, resigned, creative, lucky, simple, outraged, tired, crazy excited to be alive. 

This is when... I am crazy excited to be alive.

 Beren and I do exquisite corpse drawings on long drives. Guess who made the head.
