I took this picture of myself on my iPhone with the “Everyday” app. For a couple months, I have been taking self portraits every day, and the app compiles them into a video. The goal is to assemble a year (or more) of photos.
I am posting it here because it expresses where I am right now — a really weird place. The assumption is that this particular place would be dark, but it’s not. It’s bright and blinding and blurry (just like someone told me it would be).
I have no idea what to make of any of it, but here I am. Swimming with poets. Loving the idea of this soggy clarity. Astounded I know how to pull air from water. Imagining tiny oxygen bubbles fizzing in my veins.
