Writing on this device is like printing your own photos. There’s a big difference between an empty laptop screen and a white piece of paper. You have to physically strike it hundreds of times to compose a few paragraphs. You have to want to fill the page with something, and know what that something is.
And the difference between editing a draft of a novel on a computer and re-typing a new draft on a typewriter? Imagine Diane Arbus having to track down the last 100 people and re-shooting each one, trying to get a better photo out of the grenade boy.

If we do not own our bodies — if we can be prosecuted for manipulations of our own bodies or those of consenting individuals — then we are slaves. There is no right more fundamental than the ownership of ones own body.
— -Shannon Larratt
about what it means to me, to be the person that I am. I’ve been thinking about what the person I am looks like in my heart and my mind, and how to manifest that. I’ve got some pretty exciting ideas coming up and I’ve begun to move forward on them recently.
I don’t want to say anything prematurely so all I’ll say is that I am very excited to be participating in something that is radically different from those around me, but also traditionally the same as those who came before.
I feel I’m finally settling into who I am and it’sTHEbest feeling in the world.
Wishing everyone the best in all that is love, joy, and benevolent vibes(:
