Because I guess I'm writing a book about it (no use being shy).

Saturday fix of Ada Limón from your girl here (who's learning to be less quiet).

"Illness of Lost Opportunities" in progress (floating mechanical watch parts to be added next). I'm never sure which projects to continue with, mainly because I have so many. Either way: it was nice to doodle and do something creative that didn't involve words.

Sometimes I do insane things like make a ten-week writing production schedule along with a detailed research schedule when I have an internship/volunteer job/job/workshop to maintain. Next up, submission schedule. Time to finish all of my projects (and try not to die).

Volunteer life: cleaning drawers on drawers of old type. It's like thug life, only way nerdier and only slightly less violent (when you're a klutz).

Headless winterbelly housecat. Guarding the bathroom heater like it's a full-time job.

Process. My work is becoming much more research-based than it's ever been, and I'm really enjoying it. Recommendations for good books on puzzles and the brain, visual noise, the history of space research (particularly black holes and infinity in space), fragments, or bees are welcome. And coming soon (likely in the fall): a fun little web series where I interview people on their process in various fields.

How am I today? Feral.

"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. 👍👊
