I’m still working on the project, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is lovely. This is a deadline I did not think I would make, and now I am pretty certain I will. I’ve got friends and family who have been harassing the hell out of me gently and firmly and I have loved it.
I am also a new auntie and i am very proud of all the work i have done to achieve this. (laughing) and what I will say is that I am very happy to be reminded of how fucking amazing women are. Because HOLY SHIT.
I would like to tape to my body silent videos of my birth experiences. I think it would be an incredible installation actually, to walk around a gallery seeing the most awesome experiences of some women’s lives. I don’t actually have video of them, but I could take it from memory like Gandalf, put it in a sieve and let you see it.
This is a lunch break and I’ve made eggs and a bagel. (do you hear how my brain is mushy? I do.)
I’ve been noticing how tired I get after eating, like the full stomach of Thanksgiving day just tired and ready to sleep. My brain has a hard time snapping to attention.
And then I got a friend phone call so ANOTHER DISTRACTION! but, now i know i can get it all done, on time, probably. but there is LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!!
