"That I have faith in people’s better natures, that I know what it means to be forgiven and how to forgive, that I want a better world and know it to be possible, that I am a teacher, that I do not hate what I do not understand, that I love my country as much as I do… so much is attributable to the example set by Madiba. I wish I was home."

Spencer Finch - 366, Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year (2009)
This work is based on Emily Dickinson in 1862, when she wrote 366 poems in 365 days. It is a real-time memorial to that year, which burns for exactly one year. The sculpture is comprised of 366 individual candles arranged in a linear sequence, each of which burns for 24 hours. The colour of each candle matches a colour mentioned in the corresponding poem. For the poems in which no colour is mentioned, the candles are made out of natural paraffin.

You know it’s cold when you don’t mind getting the previous person’s butt-heat when you sit in the spot they just left because it’s warm and you don’t question wear the warmth comes from.
What I Want For Christmas
Time to read all the books I’ve received as gifts.
Time to try all the recipes in all the cookbooks I’ve received.
Time to knit all the projects with all the yarn I’ve received.
Time to use the all camping equipment.
Time to listen to all the albums.
Time to take that trip.
Time to play piano.
Time to learn the accordion.
Time to make a mess and clean it up.
Time to take a long walk.
Time to ride my bike.
Time to garden.
Time to just sit in front of the tree with a reading boyfriend and sleepy kitten and a steaming cup of tea and just breathe.
Oh, and socks.
BEST. ROOMMATE. EVER. #cupcakes #birthday
So many bridges in this city… #Seattle #clouds
Writing Brookelet: Reboot!
Ohai, tumblr. Long time no blog.
A lot has changed since I last posted, namely my goals. While before the goal was simply to write, now I’m writing with something specific in mind… A magazine!
One Ink Magazine, to be precise. It’s a new magazine that’s going to be publishing serialized…
I updated my writing blog. For once. New things are happening in the world of words!
