The last thing that made you smile
At the office where I work our freezer was recently stuffed with off brand otter pops. Every day when I realize they are there it is a new occasion to smile.
Also, I smiled or cried or both at the picture of the line of hundreds of people waiting to turn themselves in for statue toppling in Durham, NC.
I like kombucha.
The last thing you wrote
An essay about a weird sensation in my neck and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s interest in anatomy.
Your favourite city
What you’d place in a time capsule
An Anita Baker cd, a binder full of my mom’s recipes, a yoga mat, the moon stone I got when I first started dating my girlfriend, the portable Pema Chodron, my dad’s photo and video archives, a jar of mango lime pickle. I guess that’s more of a survival kit.
