In grad school one of my professors asked me in the middle of workshop, what are you afraid of? My answer then is the same as now -- something about self-consciousness v. audacity -- or love v. hate of the voice in the writing... This connection/disconnection dilemma is on my mind a lot right now.
I'm going to take this project off-line for a week -- just for a little grounding. I'm going to keep it going, though -- and I'll post them all at the end of the week. For those of you who have been reading, thank you so much, and I hope that you will read again next week!
I asked the same friend once, what happens if I deconstruct myself -- who will I be on the other side? He said that maybe I wasn't who I thought I was...
My favorite thing about New Years is that it feels like a little bit of a reset button.
Happy Happy New Year.
