“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • I went on an official, real, no responsibilities vacation. I think for the first time ever. In between pedaling, looking at greenery and listening to the ocean I was reckless: I ignored everything I'd brought with or intended and read Patti Smith's Just Kids and then Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) on the train back to civilization.

    I know everyone already knows and loves Patti Smith and this book, but it was a real revival for me--of New York and art and Pratt Brooklyn and dreams and being young. It totally captivated me in a way that lots of other reading hasn't lately. Came home and put on a bunch of records.
