It’s out! I can’t believe I’m in here, and in such incredible company. WOW. They published a selection from my Daybook project, when I wrote daily responding to the headlines about the North Korean missile crisis in the midst of heartbreak and longing. It seems useless to me to reference the year, since we’re collectively caught in a loop in the broader cultural psyche when it comes to Korea and the tensions there. Exploring that is a project I could spend a seeming lifetime on. How often must we sip from that f*cked up well until it is dry, we are dead, we are miraculously made whole again, or some other option I can’t think of right now.
I’m grateful to be included. I”m grateful for the editors, most especially Tim Yu and Lawrence Minh Bui Davis, for their enduring friendship, how they have made spaces for me and for others.
