I am visiting my family on Lake Pend o’Reille in Idaho. I am about to enter the Literature program at UCSC and am reading my first homework, “The Sorrows Of Young Werther.” Quite possibly the most depressing book I’ve ever read.
In 5th grade I bring this photo to school for a project. My teacher gushes, “look at that chubby baby.” I am mortified.
I put on my first pair of bifocals.
I am living in Santa Cruz, California and knitting wool hats and scarves.
I am a nanny in Menlo Park, CA for a high-powered lawyer and I live in an incredible house. I am finishing up a roll of film and decide to take a self portrait with the last shot on the roll.
I begin the last year of my thirties.
I am on Cannon Beach digging clams.
I am living in Spokane, Washington, standing in the yard of the house we just purchased.
I am in a Hotel room in Newport wasting time with a Holga by taking a selfie while waiting for my husband to finish his run.
