The last thing that made you smile
A mink sighting! I’m currently at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT, and have been looking out of my window every day in the hopes of seeing a mink dive into the freezing river to look for food. Today was my lucky day! And to top it off, when they come back out onto the riverbank, they roll around in the snow—it’s absolutely the cutest.
I don’t drink coffee. I’m a horrible speller. I can only tie my shoes using the bunny-ear method.

He’s addicted to the stench
of sweat-stained wraps

Your favourite city
Marfa, Texas is a wonderland but the food in Florence, Italy makes it a tie.
