Writing has always been something that I’ve done, ever since I was little.I remember writing stuff in elementary school. It was mostly fanciful, childish nonsense, but I remember writing it anyway.

Free Throwing

At about 3 o’clock today, all of us stopped working-for me, this meant putting down my research on Anne Brigman, the Pictorialist photographer- and we went over to the Ceramics studio.Since Patricia, Zoe and Mary had already thrown in the studio when Rody and I were on our field trips, they went in to trim […]
