Miscellaneous.
mis-cel-la-ne-ous; adjective.
1. (of items or people gathered or considered together) Of various types or from different sources.

I run this blog in the same way that I allow my mind to run my body; constantly and unpredictably. Like an itch that requires urgent, if unnecessary, attention, I find myself gravitating towards this empty canvas of ideas and thoughts.

Here, I can splash a pain onto the tapestry of language, and a meaning emerges from behind the curious heads of the letters. Their tiny legs carry them from reader to reader, bearing on their backs ideas, beliefs and reckonings.

I will not try to change you, if you do not try to change me. I ask only that when you find me, for you will in these pages, treat me nicely.

Dear employers, I will have to take the day off today because:

☐ It’s December and the streets are papier-mached with wet bronze leaves and it’s so dark outside that the cars have their headlights on at 3pm

☐ I have recently been through a breakup, or I have been through a breakup at any time in my life really, and I woke up today with the absolute conviction that I will never be loved again

☐ A dog looked at me

☐ I got a text from someone for whom I feel a mix of concern and frustration and recognition and longing that is both more and less than romance

☐ Someone made a joke about dead pets meeting you in heaven

☐ Daylight savings time

☐ I passed a knot of flowers that were so bright they glowed through the dim grey water of the day and when was anything in my life last that luminous?

☐ Girls are too pretty

☐ For the first time I genuinely comprehend that there is not enough time to have all the lives I wanted

☐ I accidentally listened to Leonard Cohen

This exercise will help you with your concentration.

"Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist."
