“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 think I remember doing this very same thing two years ago after the other conference, in the same city I thought was in another state: buying a book at the airport as a reprieve from thinking and plotting and organizing and other activities of scholarship. I think then it was Kindred by Octavia Butler. This time I agonized for so long in the store the worker invited me to sit down if I wanted. Eventually I settled on Bossypants, I think because it was so far from the theory I should have been reading. I got through almost half of it on the flight home. I also looked at all the pictures of the stars in a glossy mag, in a way I only have any inclination to do while trapped in airports.
