During my month in writerly solitude at a residency in Sausalito I: Stalked up and down the beach and hissed “not all who wander are lost” at passersby Saw these CDs at a bus stop and thought WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME Sat down in the dirt at the side of the road to look at Met Ball photos on my phone and realized I had not yet become aggressively enlightened in the style of the Bay Area Thought that f. Scott Fitzgerald was right when he said “SO WE BEAT ON, boats blah blah, into the past cuz people don’t change” Saw @sallywenmao do a reading as her alter ego where she said "healing isn't linear" so if writing is part of a healing process maybe IT isn't linear either and you can't FORCE an arc of enlightenment, just write what you need THAT DAY, which might be about past experiences you weren’t exactly foaming at the mouth to confront in your month of stalking up and down the beach She also said "artists are their own time machines"!!! And I thought oooh I like thinking of it that way, like here is all this material for the taking rather than a shameful paper trail I explored “nature” and thought maybe the “human impulse” to make “stories” and “connections” out of “”life”” through “”art”” is merely another pattern of “nature” Meaning I don’t have to hate old attempts so much Then I saw Dean Radin give a talk on magick and thought ok there’s a lot more going on with this “consciousness” thing than I thought!!! I will surrender and keep my head down and do my work and not understand it just yet!!!! So consider this tadpole....enlightened!!! And! In the middle of it I fled to Las Vegas 🤠

Nom nom yum yum I loved this play so much that I leaned over to @thorasiemsen after the first scene and said “I want to die”!!! From laughter, discomfort, recognition, and envy at what @halleyfeiffer is doing up there as a writer and performer 😱 sure I’m doing her other play this summer...but my REAL bias is toward PLAYS THAT MAKE ME WANT TO DIE! Go go go!!!!!

Link in bio for this list. I want a 2020 nominee who explicitly identifies Trump’s racism, Islamophobia, and weaponization of terrorism in his attacks on Ilhan Omar. Not someone who validates his spin, taking her words out of context to incite hate and violence. #StandWithIlhan

1-3 by Elena Dorfman, from her “Still Lovers” series featuring people who live with Real Dolls, or "love dolls." 4-6 by Jamie Diamond, of people who live with Reborn dolls. Some of 42 portraits I saw last week, on display at the @fondazioneprada Milan Osservatorio. It made me think of Elif Batuman's article "Japan's Rent-a-Family Industry," about people who rent actors to play their relatives, and the value of carving out a space for emotional transference. I also thought of this part from Rainer Maria Rilke's essay on dolls: "The simplest loving relationship was beyond our conception. With people who were something it was impossible for us to live and interact, the most we could do was merge into them, lose ourselves in them. But with the doll we had to assert ourselves, because if we surrendered to it there was nobody there. It made no response, so we got into the habit of doing things for it, splitting our own slowly expanding nature into opposing parts and to some extent using the doll to establish distance between ourselves and the amorphous world pouring into us." For years I have returned to this passage because I think it articulates many traditional social contracts between real people, and how rarely these agreements make room for each participant's humanity. Every home is upheld by the narrative a family creates about itself. Every relationship is a storytelling collaboration, which is why it can feel so catastrophic when one person goes off-script, or does something out of character. In a relationship with a doll, the owner is the sole narrator. All the expectations one learns to put on a loved one, all the fantasies one projects, can be channeled into a clear outlet. Maybe this relationship establishes distance with the world, or maybe it makes more room for real life to take place. With the fulfillment of emotional need can come a readiness for life's arbitrary nature. Elena and I talked a bit about the relationships she built with the doll owners. She said that she wanted to photograph them because she related to them, not because she saw them as oddities.

⭐️ SOME GIFTS FOR YOUR HOLIDAYS 4/4 ⭐️ These are books that I consider COZY. Some are anthologies/journals that offer glimpses into many lives. Others are about soul-searching, family, and origins. I can’t explain it all, they’re just cozy and good to read in bed when it’s gloomy outside. (Not pictured because they were so cozy that I lent them to friends: The Friend by Sigrid Nunez and Fashion Climbing by Bill Cunningham. Also all @rookiemag books are cozy duh.) 📚☁️😴

📰 SOME PLACES TO MAKE FRIENDS IN THE NEXT MONTH-ISH 🗞 - CRISTIN MILIOTI (covering Fiona Apple, above) is singing and talking about life this Wednesday at @largolosangeles in LA. She is one of those friends where I’m like man I wish everyone could know what it’s like to hear this person talk. Now you can!! Plus she has the voice of an angel and sings Kate Bush!!!!! ⁃ @abbijacobson has a new, addictive, heartwarmingly relatable book called I MIGHT REGRET THIS, and NEXT MONDAY 12/10 I will be interviewing her (hanging back and letting her talk) at @booksaremagicbk ✨ - @sallywenmao’s OCULUS is a life-changer. I am a charlatan of a poetry-reader, but this book awakened me to new ways of thinking about life and art. I am interviewing her at @powerhousebooks on January 17 ☄️ Now go make some friends kiddo 👵🏻
