Just Breathe

In the absence of a to-do list, which I felt completely incapable of crossing off, I decided I should allow myself to just breathe. My only tasks, get out of bed, and be. I may have shut off the news, indulged in a lot of Instagram self help posts, and also started collecting images of […]

A list in the time of Corona

In my other life I’m a production supervisor for the Metropolitan Opera, a job I find thoroughly enjoy, crossing off lists to get things done is so incredibly satisfying to me.

Sonic Arcade

When I was little I used to listen to an old walkie talkie I had found in the garage, bringing it into the house and curled up in the dark, I would turn the dial, tuning in and out of frequencies, in and out of other peoples lives, listening and piecing together the fragments like […]

Moving is in every direction

Wolfgang Tillmans with Isa Genzken, Science Fiction Every direction is go… Last week I was in Berlin and a dear friend directed me to the Hamburger Bahnhof, which is an amazing art museum of contemporary art, in a train Station, specifically for the route of Berlin to Hamburg in the 1840s. It’s a beautiful building, painted […]
