I started late. Past noon or something like that, and I was aiming for ten. Headed east but my maps app took me the wrong way, ended up having to u-turn in Beacon hill, still in Seattle, dog already crying, trying to open a bottled water between my knees. We traveled southeast for four days. A linear distance of four days. A vertical distance of, rest stops and...."roadside experiments in verticality."

The bed of a patient is quiet. I choose to be asleep, dreaming. In my dream, I see a woman in a dark suit telling me a Cantorian story. There is a dog in the corner of an elevator, very much like the one we are in right now. The dog gives birth, and leaps over a gap onto the other side.....NEWSLETTER SEVEN

Isn't time a funny thing?
Free, leisurely, persistent in nature.
These days, it has been bridled by our culture, becoming an ominous, anxiety-inducing presence. Most distressingly, it has been used as a tool to uphold white supremacist ideals in our daily lives-- see the 'research' section below for more on this. When time is so sneakily being weaponized and commodified, it is easy to forget the playfulness of it,
its slippery, protean nature.....NEWSLETTER TWO

The intention of this correspondence is to be as alive as we are -- shifting and evolving as the phases pass, as the world changes, as we do. Care is in the heart & bones of this year's "Festival," ....... NEWSLETTER ONE
