I made a couple of tooth vessels at home on Sunday in an exploration of presence+absence and the body (my body?). They’re nearly dry.

In other news, I’ve been practicing backbends a whole lot, and I’m really seeing change.

And, more news! I’ve made up my mind about graduate school: I’ll be working toward my MFA in Portland in the fall, whoa! I’m thankful for this abundance of opportunity, and I’m excited, and nervous, but mostly hopping out of my seat all the time with excitement for the future. Also everyone I’ve told has been exceptionally kind and enthusiastic and generous in offering their Portland friends’ and family’s spare bedrooms while I find a place to live. Apparently the Tucson-Portland connection is strong. And I know a lot of really, really lovely people.
