I’m nobody. Who are you?
about the writing
Donald Murray says that the strongest writing muscle you have is your ass. According to him, the writer is defined not necessarily by her ability to write, but by the amount of time she spends with her ass in a chair writing. This blog began in 2010 because I needed a place to put the writing that might happen if I held my ass accountable to the chair.
Rather than giving you a daily run-down of the mundane, I work in vignettes––the patch of sunlight on the kitchen floor the day after I said that awful thing, the shape of my mom’s collar bone, my child’s fear of jellyfish coming up through the drain of our bathtub, the sound of suitcases zipping up in the other room.
about the pictures
Many of the images come from David Parker, who is a photographer who has been working in the film industry in Atlanta, GA for over a decade. For more information about him and his work, please visit his website. If they came from me, he taught me how.
