S P A C E || Artist in Words

A CONVERSATION. This is a chance to talk about the work you create, in words. 'You need to be able to talk intelligently about your work,' said one of our photographer friends in New York. It almost seems like if you google 'artist statement' you will get a bunch more…

Change starts with wanting to

  PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY IN MOTION know that the hardest part about starting a thing is, well, starting. In classic high school Newtonian physics, the coefficient of static friction is greater than the coefficient of kinetic friction. Which means that if you had a mass on a flat surface,…

Timezones and persimmons

FRUITS. HOURS. It goes together, thinking about it. Sometimes, when certain hours go by, fruits come out of it. Yield. Is that what it is called? 'Yield?' Maybe it's just fruit. Right? Let's let it be. Fruit is coming, now. It took a while, to get things going, with The…

The way it’s going

I JUST HAD ONE OF THOSE moments, where you go, 'Waitaminute. This is way, way out of scope.' It's like the time I was in Kyoto, this would be study abroad, and I was trying to study Japanese. Made a whole two semesters of college pretty much just about looking…

In one hour

THIS IS HAPPENING. It really, really is. Four years of cojournaling. Two calls for interest in Januarys past. One short eBook anthology. And now, a small handful of people in timezones scattered who are saying 'yes' to the experiment and conversation that is this thing we made, together. Welcoming very…

The Mirror

Forget what 'they' say. THE MIRROR is for helping you discover and listen to you. You don't need anyone else to spell it out, but here it is: no one is going to regret it more if you don't do the work than you. Did you read that article that…

Hello Kuala Lumpur

IT IS INCREDIBLE. The road. How it teaches. You just have no idea where you are going to go, and then, there you are. Writing today from a small unexpectedly well-connected wifi place. Fast. Lucky. Reflecting lately on the journeys, typing and sharing the gems in S P A C E. Enjoying offline random…
