Shanna  Basically produce and cats.

"Day off." (Sorry, Mom.)

On the heels of exclaiming, out loud to myself, "Crap, I'm writing another book." .

"My plan was never to get married. I was going to be an art monster instead. Women rarely become art monsters, because art monsters only concern themselves with art, never mundane things. Nabokov didn't even fold his own umbrella. Vera licked his stamps for him." .

"Are animals lonely? Other animals, I mean."

"I'll just buy the first book for my seminar, no others... " as if i don't have a book illness. .

That's my fourth copy of "Bluets," because I read/reference it until it falls apart and turns to pulp. .

The physical weight of "Citizen" is as hefty as its content. .

Pretty stoked about my new tote! Thank you to @powerandlightpress for raising $70k for Planned Parenthood. My favorite part about this bag is that it was printed by women, and the tote comes from a woman-owned business. Women supporting women supporting women. Now can we get one for men and for our friends who aren't cisgender? Please and thank you. 👍👊

None of my photos from the women's march turned out, but they're still not as hazy as Trump's policies so... (over 100,000 PDX protesters today!)

Can't sleep. Snow makes everything take on a funny shape.

When a poem hits you like a bus, you share it.

We're fine. Everything's great. 👍

Everything covered in ice, and it felt like a gesture... until that huge branch fell on the power line in our driveway, sparks flew, and we couldn't step outside for fear of being electrocuted. But it was really pretty before that.

Solo hike: the old Port of Tillamook Bay Railway. No trail, dark, damp, cold, and (at times) scary. It was the best.

The fear of heights is still woefully intact. (Big Baldwin Bridge, 167 feet high)
