Saturday April 10 - confluences//elegance//scribbles
5PM claire's house, snax+vino

just gonna put this on lj for shits and giggles. basically, claire and i are going to be putting up some of our accumulated makings (claire has a lot of fibers, 3D art, i have photos, we both have sketches/drawings), super informal/fun, and you should come.
i am really looking forward to this after a spring break that embodied in many ways a life i am terrified of living/afraid of never having. i guess that is family.
anyway, a lot to celebrate too, like FINALLY BEING FULLTIME AT THE UO jesus christ. i will graduate in a year. i like having that timeline. i finally have some momentum after so many moronic setbacks, yet there is this pervasive lonliness that i think is a result of how i will never be close to my mom's side of the family, the anonimity of large classes, and just not seeing friends/wondering if we are even friends anymore. i'm seeing these divisions and shifts in who i do/don't spend time with. i have also really been wanting to visit colorado in may, because it will be my last chance to see those people, to revisit that moment in time of my life while it still exists. but maybe i just need to let it be. (and not spend $500 on a planeticket). i hate that that some people i don't see anymore because of what happened between them and someone else.
so, i'm seeing this thing with claire as a chance to share something of ourselves because we love you and like seeing you all together.

sometimes i am alive because with
me her alert treelike body sleeps
which i will feel slowly sharpening
becoming distinct with love slowly,
who in my shoulder sinks sweetly teeth
until we shall attain the Springsmelling
intense large togethercoloured instant

the moment pleasantly frightful

when, her mouth suddenly rising, wholly
begins with mine fiercely to fool
(and from my thighs which shrug and pant
a murdering rain leapingly reaches the upward singular deepest flower which she
carries in a gesture of her hips)

e.e. cummings

Sometimes i have just have to accept the humour of the situation.

"Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterwards"

Thank you Mr. Vonnegut.

the ironies of this homecoming weekend are going to be phenomenal, if somewhat self imposed.

now it's just a waiting game.


my heart isn't in this place.

my parents called tonight, and even though it has been a week since we talked, i had nothing to say to them, and they didn't really have anything to say to me either.

i feel like a pinball that keeps getting jettisoned upwards by these random forces, and falling down again by forces equally random. hurtling around, narrowly avoiding black holes full of secrets.

nothing wrong with navigating anchorage rush hour rihanna on the radio behind the wheel of a government truck.

nothing at all.

 carharts and stubble. freshly showered, frames.

 not much wrong with that either.

g and t's.

no WAY to go wrong.


easy to go wrong. 
but i think i can say i've done it right.
