edit as a reply

i was highly interested to read that new orleans wasn't, in fact, built in a bowl, that instead it's been washed out into the gulf over the years. that makes sense. also, i didn't mean that nobody thinks about hurricanes making landfall. i was thinking about people who decide to "ride out" hurricane...

just a bit

i've been so obsessed with the situations along the coastline that i can't bear to read all of the posts up to this point. i think that responding with my bit will be good, though. i've never before witnessed a catastrophic hurricane. the only ones i've directly witnessed have been hurricane opal (1...

children should be seen and not heard

i learned to talk at some foggy, indescernible age, when the colors fell in syllables to their deaths in punctuation, and the skyline heaved a sigh and became an ellipsis hanging, waiting for the time to learn to breathe to wait to hurry blurs along the notes we weave to speak. she was waiting, rest...

clutter

i love clutter. i keep it around and cherish it until it begins to pile or hides important things like oh, say, writing instruments, prescription medication, or the dog. these days, i clean my bedroom about once per month, i think. i clean when i'm unable to walk across the room with the light out w...

response

my stance: i think that death is a pretty pathetic punishment.
