The Shape of Things
Updated: Apr 3, 2022
I suspect that one of my biggest mistakes has been thinking that experiences are linear. Grief, for instance, is my boldest example of a life experience that is unpredictable, up down, forward, back, around. It is a goddamned mystery. Even my self-esteem, I mean, check in with me from moment to moment, because it changes.
I am more and more aware of how the idea of automation and production has influenced our expectations---of our actions, or our life trajectories.
It's all flux, right? Be like water. I feel, today, like something sludgier than that, thicker.
