This is my third tattoo and the first one in pure words. It’s a poem by Margaret Atwood. After reading the poem for the first time back in college, I knew I would have it tattooed on me someday. (photo by keith dador)
there are 3 writers that I have book crushes on even though I haven’t read them:
Charles Bukowski, Sheila Heti, & Jorges Luis Borges. I’ve read around them. I know bits about them. But I’m somewhere between saving them and a little afraid to read them in case they’re not all I’ve hoped. But they will be. So I’m slowly working my way through the list. 1 down, 2 to go.
Watch this movie about JLB. he’s super. In fact, imma go to BMV today. Target titles: the Labyrinth & Imaginary Beings.
the stories we make up about our cats. more entertaining than expected.

“…Don’t let anyone tell you what a story is, what it needs to include. As an experiment, write a non-story. It will have a chance of being different….
…The point is: it’s very important that what you do is specific to the medium in which you’re doing it, and that you utilise what is specific about that medium to do the work. And if you can’t think about why it should be done this way, then it doesn’t need to be done.”
