At least half of your mind is always thinking, I’ll be leaving; this won’t last....– Anne Carson, in her interview with the Paris Review (via mcnallyjackson)
Yuula and Lisa’s performance last night was THE BEST, better than anything else ever. Kevin was the video person, maybe after it is edited and Yuula posts it I will link it, it’s so beautiful. I think I will be spending a lot of the month on the island, maybe finally getting something done. I just miss my dog when I’m gone. Can you really take a study seriously if it says Sweden...
Meg wrote a post about what Livejournal used to be like. I am H. Remembering LiveJournal. A while ago Katharine wrote about what our online culture was like in the mid-late 90s. I wonder if I’ll ever write anything about it. It was the best thing and at the same time so awful.

Roberto Bolaño’s The Third Reich will be serialized in The Paris Review with illustrations by Leanne Shapton! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
I’ve decided to go back to the island this summer and that will be my work.

I documented Amy Lam’s performance at Dundas Square. In Yorkville I found the most impractical and difficult tiles, a kind I would be an idiot to try myself, they’re the ones! From my bedroom window I can see the top of the CN Tower lit up at night and I have my tickets booked to Oahu next December, only 11 months away. We plan ahead. I think I’m ready to go back to work after...
