1. some days are just variations on the same dream, to disappear, erasure, etc.

    All of a sudden I am remembering what it is like to have a crush, maybe. And this is confusing.

    Also, this is maybe the most tumblr-y post of all time.

    smears of ink and quietly repeating “no, no, no”, about nearly every thing

    this is my mode now,

    for

    try tracing your own circle
    ,

    with each swing of the line,
    points connected,
    you cross the axis twice
    a revolution,
    every touch, a new
    locus,
    every trip, something new
    ,

    hue as closely as you want, but
    these deviations are not failures,
    this is repetition

    —-

    swing, swing, swing

    these shadow shapes,
    these liminal
    swings,

    what do they add up to,
    what is this new shape,

    -

    a parabola is a two dimensional shape

    but there is no such thing as a clean line

     
  6. This is about committing, and about trying to understand geography’s affect. It is all an experiment, every single bit of it.

     
  7. You’re right, no one understands life. Or at least, all my favorite people agree that we, not one of us, understand life. “How is this world possible?”

    Today I gave my Dad coffee, because there are so few safe topics for conversation. And I think he appreciated it, but also understood it was a gift that was more about what I didn’t know to get him, than about what I did know.

    And then I ended the night by drinking single malt scotch with him and ate cookies and we skirted around basically everything that may or may not matter.

    I am with family, and I am not home.

    two nights ago I paid money to rent a car and drive across a large bridge. I sat in the wrong lane for around 25 minutes before I realized I could go much faster if I switched lanes. I parked, ate mediocre food I still eat because of nostalgia, and then spent a long time being frustrated.

    I went to see Mt. Eerie, because Phil Elverum’s music has come to mean a lot to me. it was two hours of trying to read Mary Ruefle in a dimly lit room on a stool that was unbelievably uncomfortable.

    but then phil got on stage, and he played new songs and older songs, and my heart broke. 

    I left early and drove home and stared at the lights and didn’t die, and my head broke into pieces, and I slept and slept and slept and woke up and cried.

    I do not fully understand my life, I do not fully understand life.

    my interests have narrowed, and I care about a few things in a way that I have not cared about other things in the past. today I shared some of that with a friend and it was a good midweek burst of light. 

    today in the shower I said words out loud that describe my mental health, only to myself, but it felt important to say them out loud.

    when you speak you make it real, is a thing a high school poet would write.

    every weekend I talk on the phone to a lot of people, I am being a friend, but the secret is I need those calls more than the people on the other end of the line realize. those calls crack open my head in ways I need, and the light shines in and I remember I am tired, but okay.

1000 Tees - 066
A riff on the old “Mean People Suck” bumper sticker. This shirt is too negative for my tastes, and not in that charming cute way.

totally get that this is way too negative for Seibei, but also, I would buy four of these. 

also, David is posting his sketches right now and you should follow him.

    Last year Yoko Ono published her second book of conceptual instructions called Acorn based on a project she did for a website from 1996-1997.

    Each weekend I’m going to do one of the assignments from Acorn as earnestly as I possibly can and record the results.

    I’m trying a thing.

    THIS IS A COOL THING GO ELLENA
