    it’s really spring, i can tell by the way some friends have been getting good news-

    image

    i’m fine,

    image

    doin good,

    image

    hanging in there,

    image

    keepin at it,

    image

    sometimes i get ‘calm before the storm,’ and ‘you need to hit rock bottom to rise to the top,’ mixed-up, are they related somehow? 

    image

    talked to someone last night about work having legs- i imagined my work with legs, in people’s homes, in galleries, at the park- i’ve never really imagined my work with limbs, though i’m pretty sure at one point i’ve seen some paintings breathe, 

    image

    chest heaves and deep sighs,

    image

    past, present, past-present,

    past-present, passed presents, past presence,

    image

    you guys hear about the heartbleed bug? pretty sure i’ve had that one for a while now- WOMP WOMP, kust jidding- but not just kidding,

    recently realized putting faith in someone means nothing with just words, it’s participatory- i wonder how many times i’ve ‘believed’ in someone or something and thought i could exist outside of it- i wanna be more active in the lives of the people and things i believe in, 

    image

    to leave a mark,

    like rilke on the impressions of rodin’s fingerprints on his figures- every detail, however minute, is essential to the make-up of the greater whole- and that the whole would not carry the same weight without said things existing in the full range of meaning: purpose, error, intention, and success,

    image

    -that last addition was me tho,

    is there something i can hold as a reminder of this commitment?  a present type of presence? a talisman? a baseball bat?

    image

    image

    they say, ‘if you want something bad enough….

    image

    -how does it end?

    got some great news for the fall, stick around, check up on me, i’ll let you know details soon- i love you, bbs,

    for most of my life, people have entrusted me with their stories: family folklore, their gossip, dreams, the mundane of their everyday- with time, i realize how all the little pieces of these stories fit together, how specific excerpts of lives and living i’ve encountered have actively combined with chance to create my own-

    the shit part of this is that i inevitably participate in, and accumulate the weight of ritual, pain, guilt and regret of things past, but these are the necessities of the larger narrative- and as much as i’m moved to build my understanding of it by listening, i know what a waste it all would be if i couldn’t contribute to it in its telling—

    however disjointed the parts may seem in their many guises- they come together clearly when there is effort to collect and watch patiently,

    i absorb and tell stories with my heart because after the cool, after the deflecting, we all know we must meet ourselves at night,
