a toad can die of light

I am feeling very anxious, crazy and overwhelmed. Maybe a little sad, too.

DON'T LET ME DOWN

This is a list of things that are continually inspiring to me. Things that have yet to let me down. I'll probably add to it as more comes to me.

As usual, this is in no particular order.

-Corin Tucker's voice.
-Joan Didion's writing.
-pets
-big dogs that are very sweet and wimpy
-Little Cakes Gallery
-Miranda July - her performances and web based work.
-Sarah Dougher, everything she does and how she somehow can do it all.
-really good Beatles songs, like maybe, "Don't Let Me Down"
-Sonja Ahlers books
-Eva Hesse
-Harpo Marx
- Joanna Newsom
- Jay-Z's "the Black Album", ( OK, the entire album besides the 2nd track "Sean CArter was born...")
- Julie Doucet's "365 Days"
-Oneida live.
-Receiving Me & Megan's books in the mail
-Love & friendship( I mean, really!)
-Maira Kalman's "Principles of Uncertainty"
- hot chocolate and good coffee ( not tea, usually)

slouching towards brooklyn

I need a second job. I need decent health insurance. I need to straighten up my room. I need to go to events and things. But, really, I'm just doing nothing. Somehow, with all of these things to do I keep finding the least important thing I could be focusing on (like say, making a list of people who I would like to invite to have a show in my hallway if i actually turn my hallway into a little gallery in the upcoming months) and doing that.

I am sort of feeling the 'when it feels to heavy that you just can't stop it thing". But I can't decide if it's one of those times I should just stay in and relax, you know, retrenchment. Or, if I should suck it up and go.
