|what i wore: uniqlo house dress, h&m lace up HIGH boots, bicycle chain necklace, earrings from harmony, vintage cameo ring from antoinette's. mac russian red lipstick. ralph lauren men's cologne. don't know what it's called.|
i wore clothes and shoes and jewelry today. and lipstick. AND SHOES. that i wore to the mailbox.
i ate my current daily lunch--open face cheese sandwich in broiler (so it gets those beautiful brown bubbles in the cheese) with sliced tomatoes, mayonnaise, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, a diet coke & pecan sandies with dark chocolate chips. sometimes i eat the same thing for lunch every day for months. and then i hate it and never eat it again.
**nathaniel hawthorne's "the birthmark" which is as awesome a story as you might ever read.
**zadie smith's essay "some notes on attunement," which also kind of blew me away, especially the section on abraham and isaac.
**marcia aldrich's essay "the art of being born," enjoyable, and sad. where was her doula? where was my doula, way back when?
**chapter 33 "the specksynder" and chapter 34 "the cabin-table" from moby dick.
** the poem "poor & butterless," and the poem "remove your shoes"
**three poems to a journal who encouraged me to resubmit once, but has nonetheless rejected my work seven times now.
|i would write so much better in this kimono & peach mules.|
