Remember to remember.

I'm going to write a book this summer. It's funny to tell people "I'm going to write a book this summer," because that makes it sound like its not a big deal and that I'm a seasoned writer. I'm not. The longest thing I've ever written was a really horrible paper about educational strategies in museums. It was 18 pages long. But anyways-- I'm going to write abook this summer! And here's what it will be about:
grief as a vehicle of self-knowledge
temporality of photographs
memory as evidence
identity narrative and performativity
queer time and space
ownership, responsibility and mattering
family and inheritance
loneliness and home
drawing as storytelling
quilting as collection
