For (the) Love (of): Art Books!

I am very fortunate to be a part of a creative household. I love Matagi – not only is he funny as hell, and smart, and a good father – he is a talented artist and designer. Though I wish we had more free time, the part of me that is Capricorn-ing secretly loves that he works as hard as he does.

Memories from around the time I read Free Play

Free Play was a subway book, and I did a lot of riding on the subway. I can see the florescent light of the train, feel it encasing me, getting close to my skin like disease. The sound of metal screeching on the tracks, kids walking between the cars opening and closing the doors. My […]
