"Give Me Your Heart"

I want to thank Betty, an absolutely lovely stranger, for getting my words permanently etched into her skin.

Original writing:
"There is something in me that is aching to be delicate,
it weeps while the rest of me cackles"

(This is for a project entitled "Give Me Your Heart" which is a part of my work for Seminar.)

Bravely (and cautiously) began to put "From The Hands of My Enemies" project into motion today. I have butterflies in a bad way.

Jenny, Chelsea, Shane, and I built this fort out of sticks in the woods at Magnolia.
Being alive is really really great.

Seminar reviews survived: 3 of 4.

The art of letting go...

Roughly six months ago, I stepped into the ocean to complete a fairly common action- cutting my hair. However, this time was different. This time had a purpose. I wasn't just letting go of my hair... I was letting go of something that had been haunting me. An experience that I wanted to separate myself from.

As a continuation of this piece, I am opening up to others and asking them a simple question:
"What would you like to let go of?"
I ask them to write the answer down on a tag, and to cut a lock of hair (as a symbol that this time, they will truly be letting go).
The hair goes into a bottle with the tag tied around the neck.

At the close of this piece, I will be putting all of the bottles into the ocean. The final action; the act of letting go.

Things that no longer exist...

I took down this entire collection of things while rearranging tonight. I like all of the white space in here. It reminds me that I definitely could/should be working harder to fill it.
and I didn't realize that I had documentation of this piece, but I ripped it up while inebriated. hhhhh

Macbook photos of studio? Why not.

these are new things... really high quality photographs of new things... really sarcastic remarks about new things.
